must be 10 because scalene means can't be same as any other side, so can't be 5 or 7. Check: is 10 less than 5 + 7? It needs to be or you can't make a triangle. And it is, so your scalene triangle has sides of 5, 7, and 10.

What does depth mean in measurements?

It is usually a linear measure in the vertical direction, measured downwards. If measured upwards, the same measure could be called a height.

How do you you find the measure of a angle?

That's a very unspecific question. Is it just an angle? Is it part of a polygon? Are the measurements specified? You could measure it with a protractor if that's what you're asking.

An instrument used to measure length width and height?

A ruler is an example of an instrument that can be used to measure relatively small linear distances, though it could not measure all three at once.

Is an scalene triangle an obtuse or an right triangle?

A scalene has three sides of unequal lengths, and all threes angles different.The largest angle defines the triangle¹:acute: a scalene triangle could have sides 6, 9, 10right angle: a scalene triangle could have sides 6, 8, 10obtuse: a scalene triangle could have sides 6, 7, 10So a scalene triangle could be any of acute, right angle or obtuse.¹In terms of acute, right angle or obtuse. Triangles can also be defined in terms of their sides: equilateral (all three sides equal), isosceles (two sides equals) or scalene (no sides equal)

Is it true that No scalene triangles are similar?

Oh, no, that isn't true. We could have a scalene triangle with sides of, say, 2 cm, 3 cm, and 4 cm. Then we could have another scalene triangle with sides of 4 cm, 6 cm, and 8 cm. These two triangles would be similar because they have a ratio of 1:2, despite the fact that they are scalene. The term 'scalene' has nothing to do with similarity; it just means that a triangle has no equal sides.

What is a scalen triangle?

a triangle that has a right angle and the other two angles are diffrent ex: angles= #1. 90 degrees/#2. 35 degrees/#3. 55 degrees

What do we measure matter in!?

It depends on the matter. Regular solid matter could be measured in metric measurements with a rule or a tape measure. Or in weight. Or in the volume of water the matter displaces, in which case the measurement would be in litres and millilitres.
