Introduction to :

Right triangles are special by themselves, but there are two magical types of right triangles that we think deserve mentioning: 45-45-90 triangles and 30-60-90 triangles. No, those aren't their bust and waist measurements. We classify them based on their angles since angles are what determine similarity.
