Why Is the Triangle the Strongest Shape?

Answer

The triangle is the strongest shape because a triangular structure subject to tough forces only collapses due to objects fatigue and not to geometric deformation. They are building designs for many structures because of their capability to tolerate large loads without deformation.
1 Additional Answer
Triangles are the strongest shape because they have fixed angles. The angles do not collapse like the angles of a square do. Triangles are used to make a truss - the strongest architectural support.
