How Do You Identify Common Parts in Overlapping Triangles?

Note:

It might seem like a challenge to make sense of figures with overlapping triangles, but it's not so difficult! This video gives some commonsense advice for identifying common angles and common sides in these figures.

Angles are a fundamental building block for creating all sorts of shapes! In this tutorial, learn about how an angle is formed, how to name an angle, and how an angle is measured. Take a look!
