: How are triangles used in everyday life. I mean used, not seen. I've had people tell me hangers are shaped like triangles and tortilla chips, etc. I need to know how they are USED. THANKS!!!!!!!
lots of ways!!!!!! look up triangulation. (or do a google search...)
or if you want a really simple basic example, consider a slanted ramp to a doorway above ground (e.g. from sidewalk to door). How would you draw the plans to indicate the ramp? Could you tell someone the distances (vertical, horizontal, and slanted) that the triangle forming the ramp has?
