# Triangle Word Problem

The worksheet presents a geometry problem involving five points on a plane, one of which is labeled point P. Students are asked to determine how many distinct triangles can be formed using point P and any two of the other four points. The task is visually supported by a simple illustration showing the points spread out, with no lines or triangles drawn, leaving the students to imagine and count the possibilities.

The purpose of this worksheet is to teach students about combinations in a geometric context and to reinforce their understanding of what constitutes a triangle. By engaging with this problem, students will practice counting possible combinations without repetition, a fundamental concept in both geometry and combinatorics. Furthermore, it encourages students to visualize geometric shapes and understand the properties that define a triangle, such as the necessity of having three non-collinear points.
