# Symmetry Groups of Triangles

We introduce the connection between geometric figures and abstract algebra by showing how you can associate a group with triangles. The more symmetric the triangle, the larger the group. We illustrate this by finding the group of symmetries for equilateral, isosceles and scalene triangles.
