I have just been pondering these pass couple days on how would you find the area of a sphereical trangle.

HOW WOULD YOU DO IT?

So a sphereical triangle is an example of non-euclid geometry right?

The geometry of the sphere [the two-dimensional surface of a ball] is an example of a noneuclidean geometry [since the Parallel Postulate doesn't hold]. A triangle on this surface reveals this because the sum of its interior angles is not 180
