The branch of mathematics dealing with shape, size, relative position of figures, and the properties of space is known as Geometry.
This wing of Geometry deals with flat shapes like lines, circles & triangles of two dimensions. This shapes can be drawn on a piece of paper.
It deals with three dimensional objects like cubes, prisms, cylinders & spheres
List of Geometrical Shapes and their Features
A polygon is a closed figure of line segments. The name ‘poly’ refers to multiple. Hence, in a polygon, ‘n’ number of lines can intersect and connect to form a polygon.
A triangle is a three sided polygon whose sum of internal angle always sums to 180 degrees. There are three types of triangles depending on the length of their sides, namely – Equilateral triangle, Isosceles triangle and Scalene triangle.
Square is a quadrilateral figure formed by four equal sides and four right angles.
It is a four sided polygon with equal opposite sides and all right angles.
A circle is a closed shape. From a certain point called centre, all points of a circle are of same consistent distance.
A cube is a three-dimensional solid object bounded by 6 square faces, with 3 of the sides meeting at a vertex.
In plane geometry, a quadrilateral is a polygon with four edges and four vertices. Irregular quadrilateral, Trapezoid, Isosceles Trapezoid, Parallelogram, Kite, Rhombus, Rectangle & Square are few most common examples of a Quadrilateral.
