It is an obtuse or scalene triangle having the given angles

A scalene triangle is a triangle in which all three sides have different lengths. The difference between a scalene right triangle and a scalene obtuse triangle is that in the first one, we can find the measure length of the third side when we know the lengths of the two other sides, and in the second one we cannot.

Yes, yes it is. A scalene triangle is just a triangle with three different degree values.

Yes, it's quite simple. First, let's define what a scalene obtuse triangle is and in so doing show that a scalene obtuse triangle CAN be constructed.'Scalene' means that all three sides are not equal (of different lengths).'Obtuse' means that at least one of the angles is greater than (>) 90o.So, as long as the triangle has 3 sides that are not equal and contains one angle that is >90o, you can create a scalene obtuse triangle.Another way to make sure you can construct the aforementioned is:If you know the lengths of the triagle sides you can add any two(2) of them the sum of which should be greater than the length of the 3rd side. This is know as the Triangle Inequality Theorem.Under the Resources link, there is a website to construct a scalene obtuse triangle as proof.

Yes. The triangle with sides 7 cm, 8 cm, 13 cm is obtuse (the angle opposite the side of 13 cm is 120o) and scalene as none of the sides are equal.

The answer is no.

Yes. Scalene simply means that a triangle's sides are all different lengths. Obtuse means that a triangle has an obtuse angle. Therefore, you can have an obtuse scalene triangle.

right obtuse triangle

It is impossible to have an obtuse AND scalene triangle, because in order for it to be obtuse, it must have one obtuse angle but, in order for a triangle to be scalene it must have two equivalent sides. So, in the end if you have an obtuse and scalene triangle, it is not longer a triangle.

A scalene triangle CAN be obtuse. A scalene triangle just has to have different measurement on all three sides.

Sometimes, it can or can not be a obtuse triangle.

Yes it is possible to have a obtuse scalene triangle.
