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! ^-^
