Math Basics A Fallacy in Geometry

You might think that crazy things like 1=2 can be *proved* if we make basic blunders in Algebra. But, in geometry also you can *prove* wild things like a right angle is an obtuse angle — errr…hmm…provided you make flaws in some fundamental assumption/axiom/theorem/property. So, check how strong are your basics in Euclidean/plane or high school geometry — point out my mistake in the proof “a right angle is an obtuse angle!”.
