There are many theories and formulas that can be applied to find the length of each of the sides of a triangle. The most common is the Pythagorean Theorem: a2+b2= c2 . The letters: "a , c" are the two legs. The hypotenuse is the letter "c". For a 30-60-90 triangle you can use a special formula, as well as a 45-45-90 triangle.

A triangle is called a scalene triangle if its sides have different length measures. Since in an isosceles triangle there are two congruent sides, it cannot be a scalene triangle.

How do you find am angle in an irregular triangle when given two sides?

if it is given 3 sides for a irregular triangle and its two measures are given then we will take the un measured sides as x.if a triangle is of 3 sides then its 3 sides measure will be 180.lets take its one side be 60 and the other be 60. then we have to write like this-------- 60+60+x=180 120+x=180 x=180-120 x=60 like this we can find the measures of an irregular triangle when given two sides.
