i think there is no name for that
I have searched through some dictionaries, and not found any name for the right angle symbol. Perhaps its name is "right angle symbol"
the square is there to show that the catets are perpendicular...since we know that all the edges in a square are perpendicular.
What is the name / is there a name for the square in the right angle symbol? My geometry teacher did not know and would give extra credit to anyone who finds out. I have been looking everywhere for its name but its never said. If you know, please tell me what it is!
