# So... what is the offical name for the "slice of pie" shape?

My daughter and I were playing with a shape sorter and she wanted the names for all the shapes... I knew all of them, even the trapazoid, except for the "slice of pie". Anyone out there know the official name for a triangle with one rounded side?

• i was trying to look it up for you but can't find an answer

• A cone would be 3D.... I seem to remember "sliver" being used in school when talking about pie graphs. I don't know if that's the right term, though.

• Isosceles Triangle teach them big hard juicy words!! Stimulates their minds AND they are funny to hear when they try to say it!!

• FOUND IT! It's a "sector".

A cone is a 3-D shape like a dunce hat or a fancy princess hat.
A wedge is also a 3-D shape like a doorstop.
A isosceles triangle is just a triangle where all the sides are the same length. Though it is funny to hear those little mouths trying to say such words!

This has really been bugging me since we got the shape sorter toy over a year ago! Thanks for helping everyone.

• Isosceles isn't a triangle with all of the same sides the same length. That is an equilateral, being that all sides are the same, while an object with all angles the same is an equiangular. Isosceles is a triangle with two of the same sides.
