No, a scalene triangle is simply a triangle where all angles are not equal and all side lengths are not equal, therefore they can or cannot be obtuse.

No. Scalene triangles have no equal sides or angles but can be obtuse, right angled or acute.

Some obtuse triangles are scalene?

Obtuse triangles can also be scalene if none of the sides are of equal length. Otherwise, it is an isosceles triangle.

Are all scalene triangles acute triangles?

No, scalene triangles can be obtuse, right or acute triangles. A 3 - 4 -5 right triangle (lengths of the sides) is one example of a right-scalene triangle. In fact, with the exception of the [45°, 45°, 90°] right triangle (which is isosceles) all other right triangles are scalene.

All kinds of triangles?

Are the exterior angles of a scalene triangle always obtuse?

No, they are not always obtuse, because a scalene triangle can also sometimes be an obtuse triangle (meaning that one interior angle is obtuse), making one exterior angle acute. Scalene triangles also can be a right triangles (meaning that one interior angle is a right angle), which would make an exterior angle a right angle. Then also they can be acute triangles, in this case all 3 exterior angles are obtuse.

Why are all scalene triangles obtuse?

Thay aren't. A scalene triangle has 3 uncongruent sides. While an isoceles has only one uncongruent.

Can scalene triangles be acute or obtuse?

A scalene triangle can have 1 obtuse angle and 2 different acute angles or it can have 3 different acute angles providing that the 3 angles in both scalene triangles add up to 180 degrees.

Does all angles of a scalene triangles are acute angles?

Not always because one of the interior angles could be obtuse.
