Planar (two-dimensional) shapes are defined by the number of sides. A specific kind of shape called a
polygon is a closed figure with straight line segments for sides. To answer your question, then, we would need to know whether it is a two-dimensional shape, such as a polygon, or a three-dimensional shape, which
is called a solid for reasons that should make sense to anyone living in a world of three dimensions--it has width, length, and depth, just like anything that has any amount of volume. If it is two-dimensional and, as you say, is "similar" to a triangle, I
have to assume that it is a three-sided closed figure with straight sides. In other words, it
*is* a triangle. Otherwise, it's just three line segments on a page.

You could draw it, and then use a scanner to scan it, or a digital camera to take a photo and put it on your computer. Then upload it to a website like http://imageshack.us/ or http://photobucket.com/ and once it's uploaded, copy and paste the link here.
