Will side lenghts 6in and 6in make a triangle?

Only if the 3rd side is equal or less than 6in

What is the altitude of an equilateral triangle with side lenghts 14?

Given side lengths of 14 units, the altitude is 12.1 (12.12436) units.

Could side lenghts 335665 make a right triangle?

If you mean lengths of 33 by 56 by 65 then the given dimensions will form a right angle triangle.

What are the names of the triangles by side lenghts?

Scalene triangle = All sides are different lengths Isosceles triangle = Two sides have the same length Equilateral triangle = All three sides are the same length

Which measurements could be the lenghts of the sides of a triangle 5cm2cm7cm?

No the given measurements would not make a triangle because in order to construct a triangle the sum of its smallest sides must be greater than its longest side.

Can you make a triangle out of side lenghts 8 7 and 15?

No because in order to construct a triangle the sum of its 2 smaller sides must be greater than its longest side.

What is the area of a triangle with the side lenghts 12 and 14 and 24?

Area of triangle: 0.5*12*14*sin(134.6183417) = 16 square units rounded to the nearest whole number

Can 8 7and 16 be the lenghts of the sides of a triangle?

No, By the triangle inequality theorem (or something like that), the sum of any two sides of a triangle must add up to be greater than the third side. 8+7

Would a triangle with the given side lenghts of 14 18 and seven make a right triangle?

Pythagorean thm: a2+b2=c2 72+ 142= 49+196=245 182= 324 Therefore NO; not a rt triangle

How can you tell if it is possible to draw a triangle with those side lenghts?

Each side-length must be -- less than the sum of the other two -- more than the difference of the other two

What does scale factor between two similar figures tell you about their side lenghts?

Say you had Triangle A. Triangle A has these sides: Side 1: 9 Side 2: 6 Side 3: 6 Pretend the scale factor indicates Triangle A is 3 times the size of Triangle B, whose sides are currently unknown. To find the sides of triangle B, simply divide all the sides of triangle A by 3. You should get: Triangle B Side 1: 3 Side 2: 2 Side 3: 2 I hope that somewhat answers your question! ^-^

What has Pythagoras accomplished?

he came up with the Pythagoras theorem: a2+b2=c2 a and be are the lenghts of a triangle and c is the hypotenuse (the longest side of a right triangle) he also said learn the answer to a problem gives a new question.
