# 1. Draw a triangle using the f

**Question description**

1. Draw a triangle using the following lengths: 11 cm, 8 cm, and 5 cm.
2. Form another triangle using the same set of lengths.
3. Measure the angles of both triangles using a protractor.
Questions:
1. What are the measures of the angles in the first triangle?
2. What are the measures of the angles in the second triangle?
3. What is the relationship between the angles of each triangle?
4. What can you conclude about the relationship between the triangles? Why?
Part 2:
1. Draw two rays (11 cm and 5 cm) that form a 60 degree angle between them.
2. Draw two more rays of the same length (11 cm and 5 cm) that form a 60 degree angle
between them.
3. Draw a line to represent the 3rd side. Repeat the process for the 2nd triangle.
4. Measure the length of the 3rd side and the two remaining angles for each triangle.
Questions:
1. What is the length of the 3rd side?
2. What are the measures of the remaining angles?
3. What can you conclude about the two triangles? Why?
4. Repeat the process using any two lengths and any angle of your choice. Do you get the
same result? Will you always get the same result?
