An acute angled triangle, right angled triangle or obtuse angled triangle.

It has 2 equal sides of right triangle.

no. according to Pythagoras. If a, b,c are 3 sides of a right angled triangle, a2 +b2 = c2

In a right angled triangle: perpendicular(p), base(b) and hypotenuse(h) are related by the following relation p2 + b2 = h2 On putting the values we get h = 501/2 inches.

It is usually a side from the apex of the triangle to the base. However, in the case of a right angled triangle a leg could refer to the two sides which define the right angle.

right angled triangle does not have all equal sides

A right-angled triangle can have equal sides, but does not have to. A right-angled triangle with two equal sides CANNOT be an equilateral triangle. A right-angled triangle cannot be an equilateral triangle.Divide a square along the diagonal, and you are left with two right-angled triangles with two sides of equal length.

An acute angled triangle, right angled triangle or obtuse angled triangle.

Yes. If it is a right triangle, the angle opposite the hypotenuse will be right, 90o, therefore if the lines forming the angle were to continue, they would be perpendicular. What's the question?

It has 2 equal sides of right triangle.

No, not in general. Only a right triangle has two sides which are perpendicular.

A right angle triangle has no parallel sides

The perpendicular sides of a right triangle are its legs. The remaining side is the hypotenuse.

No

yes and then it will be called a right-angled triangle
