Triangles are three-sided, two-dimensional flat shapes first described in Euclid's "Elements", books 1–4, c. 300 BC. They are classified according to the lengths of their sides, and the three main types are- equilateral, a regular polygon with three equal sides and three angles each measuring 60°; isosceles, with two equal-sided lengths and two equal-measured angles; and scalene, with all sides of different lengths and all angles of different measurements. Basic Facts is based on the equilateral triangle, with hints of isosceles and scalene.
