Yes. Scalene simply means that a triangle's sides are all different lengths. Obtuse means that a triangle has an obtuse angle. Therefore, you can have an obtuse scalene triangle.

A scalene triangle CAN be obtuse. A scalene triangle just has to have different measurement on all three sides.

The definition of an obtuse triangle is a triangle with an angle exceeding 90o. A scalene triangle is a triangle in which no two sides are of equal length. Therefore, it is possible that an obtuse triangle is a scalene triangle. However, it is also possible for an obtuse triangle to be an isosceles, in which two sides are of equal length. On a final note, it is impossible for an obtuse triangle to be an equilateral; equilateral triangles always have angles of 60o.

Sometimes, it can or can not be a obtuse triangle.

Yes it is possible to have a obtuse scalene triangle.

It is impossible to have an obtuse AND scalene triangle, because in order for it to be obtuse, it must have one obtuse angle but, in order for a triangle to be scalene it must have two equivalent sides. So, in the end if you have an obtuse and scalene triangle, it is not longer a triangle.

It is an obtuse scalene triangle

Not necessarily.

It can be but doesn't have to.

A scalene triangle has 3 unequal acute interior angles An obtuse triangle has 1 obtuse and 2 unequal interior angles

It can be an isosceles triangle or a scalene triangle if it has 1 obtuse angle
