Can a triangle with a 4 inch side have a 55 and 35 degree angle?

A triangle with 1 side only measuring 4 inches can have two of its angles measuring 55° and 35°. The side would be either the hypotenuse or one other other sides of a right angled triangle. NOTE : A triangle with two of the three sides measuring 4 inches cannot have one of its angles measuring 55° and one other measuring 35° as the two sides of equal length would define it as an isosceles triangle. Therefore two of its angles are equal. If the two equal angles measured 35° each, then the third angle would equal 110°. If the two equal angles measured 55° each then the third angle would equal 70°. A triangle with all three sides measuring 4 inches has all three angles measuring 60° . It is an equilateral triangle.

What must be true of the side lengths in order to build a triangle with three angles measuring 60 degrees what kind of triangle is this?
