The Interior Angles of a Triangle Sum to Pi
Requires a Wolfram Notebook System
Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.
The interior angles of any plane triangle can together form a straight line. This is illustrated by the blue triangle, which has one vertex fixed at the origin and its two other vertices shaded in yellow and green. The two gray auxiliary triangles are congruent to the blue triangle, and are positioned to form a straight line through the origin. Use the slider to clarify the relationships between the various angles.
