Why Are Triangles so Strong?

Answer

There are a number of reasons why triangles are so strong. This is because they form a fixed rigid shape. They are also strong because the angles at their vertices can not change unless you alter the length of the sides.

Triangles are so strong because they have a bigger base then their tops. Typically, all the weight of the triangle is at the bottom. The weights are then added in decreasing weight until the lightest weight is on top. It is the strength of the base that makes triangles very strong.
