    The right angle triangle poster says that it has 2 sides of equal length … yet it is perfectly possible to have a right angled scalene. Could the poster be amended?

    Also, the illustrations are of regular polygons. Could irregular pentagons, hexagons and octagons be added?

    Hi, trapeziums only have one parallel side, not two.

      Never mind, I see it does not mean pair.

    Addition by Scott (Teach Starter) 22nd Jun, 2017

  • Removed the text specifying that a right-angled triangle has two equal sides. While this right-angled triangle has two equal sides, not all do.
