an isosceles triangle has only 2 equal length sides and a scalene triangle has no equally lengthen sides. obviously they are in the shape of a triangle.

only equilateral triangles the other three, scalene isosceles and right angled, do not

No, scalene triangles, which have sides of different lengths, have none. Isosceles triangles, with only two sides the same, only have one.

"Scalene" refers to triangles that have (only) two sides of the same length, and thus two equal interior angles.

Thay aren't. A scalene triangle has 3 uncongruent sides. While an isoceles has only one uncongruent.

Only if they contain a 90 degree angle

There can be no closed 3D shape with only one square and 3 triangles.

Any triangle can have a maximum of one right angle. Most right triangles are scalene triangles. The only non-scalene right triangle is a 45° - 45° - 90° isosceles right triangle. It is not possible to have an equilateral right triangle in plane geometry. A scalene triangle does not have to have a right angle, but it can have one.

They can be. There are 4 types of triangles: scalene, equilateral, right, and isosceles. A triangle can only be isosceles under the circumstance that it has at least 2 equal sides.

A scalene triangle has three unequal sides, an equilateral triangle has three equal sides. An isosceles triangle has two equal sides. Because with a scalene triangle only two sides are equal but with a equilateral triangle that would mean all sides are equal. (scalene = 2 sides & equilateral = all sides equal)

No. Only right triangles do, and not all triangles can be right triangles. Equilateral triangles, for example, are always 60°-60°-60°. Isosceles and scalene triangles can be right triangles; all isosceles triangles have the additional useful property of being able to be split into two right triangles.

scalene triangles means that no three sides have the same length. which means that Yes it is possible to have a right scalene triangle since the only requirement you need for a right triangle is to have a right angle
