 method
 returns the method to define a triangle

 Calling Sequence method(T)

Parameters

 T - triangle

Description

 • The routine returns the method used to define the triangle T. It returns points'', sides'', or angle''. See the help page of triangle for the explanation of the output.
 • The command with(geometry,method) allows the use of the abbreviated form of this command.

Examples
