A triangle with a right angle is a right triangle.

Any triangle that has a 90 degree angle and two acute angles is a right angle triangle.

No.

If all of the angles in a triangle are acute then it is an acute triangle. If one angle is right (or 90 degrees) then it is a right triangle. If one angle is obtuse then it is an obtuse triangle.

no an acute triangle does not have a right angle. if it had a right angle, it would be called a right triangle. to be an acute triangle, the triangle needs two angles that are smaller than 90 degrees.

In a right angled triangle the two other angles are acute.

In a right angled triangle the two other angles are acute.

a right triangle has one right angle and two acute angles

False ------------------------------------ An acute triangle is one in which all angles are acute angles. An acute angle is less than 90°. A right angle is 90°, which is equal to 90° not less than 90° Therefore all the angles of a right triangle are not all acute Thus a right triangle is not an acute triangle.

The triangle is slanted to the right

Such a triangle would presumably have one right angle, and two acute angles. A right angle has a measure of 90 degrees; an acute angle has a measure of less than 90 degrees. Since both of the other two angles in a right triangle must be acute angles, you'd think at first that every right triangle must be a right acute triangle. But when you go and look up the definition of an "acute triangle", it turns out to be a triangle in which all three angles are acute. So the fact is that there's no such thing as a right acute triangle, because the 90-degree angle in a right triangle is not acute.
