Geometry is a branch of Mathematics in which we study point, line, angle and different type of shapes.
It is a flat surface which has only length and breadth .
For example- surface of a table, surface of a white board etc.
A point is a sharp dot.
It has no length breadth and height.
It can't be measured.
It is used to locate any thing, then it is called locator.
A point is named by a capital letter like .A
A line is a collection of points. It's starting point and ending point is endless.
Arrows on both sides of a line indicate that the line is extended both sides infinitely. It has only length but not have any width or height.
A line is named by two points on it or by a single small letter.
Line segments is a part of line.
It's starting and ending points are defined.
It's length is definite.
Line segment named by two capital letter like AB.
Ray is a part of line, It's one point is defined ( fixed ) and other point is endless.
Arrow of a ray indicates that ray is extended infinitely towards arrow direction.
When two lines intersect each other at a point, then they are called intersecting lines.
Point through these two lines pass that point is called point of intersection.
When two lines intersect each other at right angles is called perpendicular lines.
Symbol for perpendicular lines is ⊥
When two or more then two lines passes through a point is called concurrent lines.
Point through which these all lines pass is called point of concurrent.
When two lines lie in the same plane and never intersect each other at any point if they produced.
Perpendicular distance between them is equal.
Symbol for parallel lines is ∥.
When two rays start from a common point then angle is formed.
Angle is measured in degree.
Types of Angle
An angle whose measure degree more than 0° but less than 90° is called acute angle. ( 0° < θ < 90° )
An angle whose measure degree is more than 90° but less than 180° is called obtuse angle. ( 90° < θ < 180° )
An angle whose measure degree is equal to 90° is called right angle. ( θ = 90° )
An angle whose measure degree is equal to 180° is called straight angle. ( θ = 180° )
An angle whose measure degree is more than 180° but less than 360; is called reflex angle. ( 180° < θ < 360° )
An angle whose measure degree is equal to 360° is called whole angle. ( θ = 360° )
Sum of two angles is equal to 90° is called complementary angle.
Sum of two angle is equal to 180° is called supplementary angle.
∠ AOD + ∠BOD = 180°
Vertically opposite angles
When two lines intersect then pair of opposite angles is equal and they are called pair of vertically opposite angle.
∠AOC = ∠BOD and ∠AOD = ∠BOC
When an angle is equally divided by a line is called angle bisector.
A closed figure which is made by three or more than three ling segments is called polygon.
Example- triangle, square, pentagon etc.
Types of Polygon
A polygon whose each interior angle is less than 180° is called convex polygon.
A polygon whose one interior angle is more than 180° is called concave polygon.
A polygon in which all sides and angles are equal is called regular polygon.
A polygon in which all sides and angles are not equal is called irregular polygon.

Triangle is a type of polygon which is made by three line segments.
It have three vertices.
Types of triangle
Triangles can be classified on the basis of their sides or angles.
On the basis of sides
A triangle in which all three sides are equal and each angle is 60° is called an equilateral triangle.
A triangle in which two sides are equal is called isosceles triangle.
Angle opposite to equal sides are equal.
A triangle in which all three sides are unequal is called scalene triangle
On the basis of angles
Acute angle triangle
A triangle in which each angle is acute ( less than 90° ) is called an acute angle triangle.
Obtuse angle triangle
A triangle in which one angle is obtuse ( more than 90° but less than 180° ) is called obtuse angle triangle.
Right angle triangle
A triangle in which one angle is 90° is called right angle triangle.
Properties of Triangles
- In a triangle sum of all interior angles is 180°.
It is known as angle sum property.
In triangle ABC, ∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180°
2. In a triangle sum of two sides is greater than the third side.
In triangle ABC, AB + BC > AC, BC + CA > AB, AB + AC = BC
3. In a triangle the exterior angle is equal to the sum of two opposite interior angles. ( It is known as exterior angle theorem )
∠ACD = ∠ABC + ∠BAC
4. In a triangle difference between two sides is smaller than the third side.
In triangle ABC, AB - BC < CA, BC - CA < AB, CA - AB < BC
5. In a triangle side opposite to greater angle is larger side.
In triangle ABC, if ∠B > ∠C, then AC > AB
6. In a triangle side opposite to smaller angle is smaller side.
In triangle ABC, if ∠A < ∠C, then BC < AB
7. In a triangle sides opposite to equal angles are equal.
For example- In a triangle ABC, if AB = AC then ∠B = ∠C
Congruency of Two Triangles
Two triangles are congruent if both triangle same shape and same size.
If two triangle are congruent, then the all three sides and all three angles of one triangle are equal to the corresponding to other triangle.

Similarity of Two Triangles
When shapes of two triangles are same but their size may or may not be equal. If two triangles are similar, then all the corresponding angles are equal and all the corresponding sides are in the same ratio.
