The Wikipedia has the following information about this codepoint:
A triangle is a polygon with three edges and three vertices. It is one of the basic shapes in geometry. A triangle with vertices A, B, and C is denoted △ A B C {displaystyle riangle ABC} .
In Euclidean geometry, any three points, when noncollinear, determine a unique triangle and simultaneously, a unique plane (i.e. a twodimensional Euclidean space). In other words, there is only one plane that contains that triangle, and every triangle is contained in some plane. If the entire geometry is only the Euclidean plane, there is only one plane and all triangles are contained in it; however, in higherdimensional Euclidean spaces, this is no longer true. This article is about triangles in Euclidean geometry, and in particular, the Euclidean plane, except where otherwise noted.
