6th Class Mathematics Basic Geometrical Ideas

  • question_answer 19) Investigate Use strips and fasteners to make a triangle and a quadrilateral. Try to push inward at any one vertex of the triangle. Do the same to the quadrilateral? Is the triangle distorted? Is the quadrilateral distorted? Is the triangle rigid? Why is it that structures like electric towers make use of triangular shapes and not quadrilaterals?


    On pushing inward at any one vertex of the triangle, we find that the triangle is not distorted. Whereas doing so with the quadrilateral, we find .that it is distorted. Triangle is rigid. Thus, we use triangular shapes in making structures like electric towers as triangular shapes.
