Yes!!!! You can. If you know the side lengths, say 7,9 & 11.

You need a ruler and a pair of compasses.

Draw you base line of '11' .

Open the compasses to '9' using the ruler.

Put one point of the compass on the end of the base line and draw an arc.

Again open the compasses to '7' . Put one point of the compass on the other end of the base line and draw an arc.

Where the two arcs intersect is the apex of the triangle.

So taking your ruler drawe a line from one end of the base line to the apex. ,and then again draw a line from the other end of the base line to the apex. You now have a 7,9, & 11. triangle(trigon).

Proving you know the side lengths, this method is hood for any shaped triangle.

It is possible.

### Can an acute triangle also be scalene?

Yes, an acute triangle can also be scalene.

### Is it possible to have an acute scalene triangle?

Of course. "Acute" means that all angles are less than 90 degrees, and "scalene" means that none of its sides or angles match. Draw an equilaterial triangle and then nudge one point slightly, on a path which is parallel to the opposite side. Acute scalene triangle.

### What is an scalene acute triangle?

A scalene triangle is a triangle that has three unequal sides.

### Can a acute triangle also be scalene?

Scalene means the triangle has 3 sides unequal length. Acute means the triangle has 3 acute angles (less than 90o). So you should be able to draw a scalene acute triangle pretty easily. An equilateral triangle has all sides the same length and all angles are 60o. If you stretch one side a little, and shrink another side a little you will have a scalene triangle. And as long as you haven't stretched or shrunk the sides too far, it will also still be acute.

No.
