HTML-CSS: Triangle

HTML-CSS : Exercise-32 with Solution

Using HTML, CSS creates a triangular shape with pure CSS.

  • Use three borders to create a triangle shape.
  • All borders should have the same border-width (20px).
  • The opposite side of where the triangle points towards (i.e. top if the triangle points downwards) should have the desired border-color. The adjacent borders (i.e. left and right) should have a border-color of transparent.
  • Altering the border-width values will change the proportions of the triangle.
