They both have right angles (obviously) But the scalene has no sides the same length but the isosceles has 2 equal sides

No. An isosceles right triangle is a special case. There are many right triangles which are not isosceles.

A right angled isosceles triangle!

No, an isosceles triangle can not be a right triangle, because a right triangle has an angle of 90 degrees angle, and two angles of 45 degrees. An isosceles triangle has all acute angles, therefor, making it an acute triangle, so no, an isosceles triangle is not, i repeat not, a right triangle.

No. They are usually different.An isosceles triangle has two equal angles and two equal adjacent sides. An isosceles triangle with three 60° angles is the equilateral triangle.Only one isosceles triangle, which has two 45° angles, includes a right angle and is called an isosceles right triangle.

A right triangle and an isosceles triangle have the fact that they are both triangles in common. A right triangle can also be an isosceles triangle.

A triangle that has one right angle and is isosceles is called an isosceles right triangle.

No. An isosceles right triangle is a special case. There are many right triangles which are not isosceles.

An isosceles triangle has two equal sides and two equal angles. A right triangle is any triangle with one angle that is a right angle. A right triangle could also be an isosceles triangle, but an isosceles triangle will not always have a right angle.

An isosceles triangle has two equal sides and two equal angles. A right triangle is any triangle with one angle that is a right angle. A right triangle could also be an isosceles triangle, but an isosceles triangle will not always have a right angle.

It can be. If two of the sides of a right triangle are the same length then it is an isosceles triangle

Not normally but if it has angles of 90, 45 and 45 degrees it is then both a right angle and an isosceles triangle

Yes, a right triangle an be an isosceles triangle. The triangle will will have a 90 degree angle and two 45 degree angles. This is the only way a right angle triangle can also be an isosceles triangle.

An isosceles triangle may have a right angle, but a right angle is not a requirement of all isosceles triangles.

No, an isosceles triangle can not be a right triangle, because a right triangle has an angle of 90 degrees angle, and two angles of 45 degrees. An isosceles triangle has all acute angles, therefor, making it an acute triangle, so no, an isosceles triangle is not, i repeat not, a right triangle.
