A triangle is a three-sided polygon that has three angles that add up to 180 degrees. Each of these angles is known as an interior angle and is formed by two sides meeting at a common vertex. The measure of each angle can vary depending on what type of triangle is being considered.

Equilateral Triangle : An equilateral triangle is a triangle that has three equal sides and three equal angles (all measuring 60 degrees).

Isosceles Triangle : An isosceles triangle is a triangle that has two sides equal in length and two equal angles (both measuring 60 degrees), plus one smaller angle (measuring 60 degrees).

Scalene Triangle : A scalene triangle is a triangle that has three unequal sides and three unequal angles (all measuring less than 60 degrees).

Right Triangle : A right triangle is one with a 90 degree angle and two other angles that add up to 90 degrees and measure 45 degrees.

Given these different types of triangles and their respective degrees, the answer to the question of how many degrees is a triangle is 180 degrees for all types of triangles.
