Constructing triangles

A triangle is a polygon with three sides. To construct a triangle, you can simply draw a polygon that has three sides. However, if you have some data, you must know how to construct the triangle to comply with that instructions. To help you study maths, below you cand learn how to construct triangles given some data. To do this, the stuff you'll need are the following: 

- Compass 
- ruler 
- protractor 
- Drawing materials (pencil and eraser) 

Thus, there are three ways to construct triangles: 

- Given the measures of the three sides; 
- Given the measures of two sides and the amplitude of the angle formed by them; 
- Given the length of one side and the amplitudes of its adjacent angles.
