Tessellation of Triangles and Pentagons
Alternately, this can be seen as a tessellation of hexagons and enneagons. Which do you see?

Polygons Related to the Golden Ratio, and Associated Figures in Geometry, Part 1: Triangles
There are two isosceles triangles which are related to the golden ratio, [1 + sqrt(5)]/2, and I used to refer to them as the “golden acute isosceles triangle” and the “golden obtuse isosceles triangle,” before I found out these triangles … Continue reading
On Triangle Congruence, and Why SSA Does Not Work
Those who have taught geometry, when teaching triangle congruence, go through a familiar pattern. SSS (sidesideside) triangle congruence is usually taught first, as a postulate, or axiom — a statement so obvious that it requires no proof (although demonstrations certainly … Continue reading

A Polyhedral Demonstration of the Fact That Twenty Times Four Is Eighty
The Platonic solid known as the icosahedron has twenty triangular faces. This polyhedron resembles the icosahedron, but with each of the icosahedron’s triangles replaced by a panel of four faces: three isosceles trapezoids surrounding a central triangle. Since (20)(4) = … Continue reading

The 98190 Triangle
In a previous post (right here), I explained the 187290 triangle, derived from the regular pentagon. It looks like this: I’m now going to attempt derivation of another “extraspecial right triangle” by applying halfangle trigonometric identities to the 18º angle. After … Continue reading
