### Could triangles have right angles?

Yes, although a triangle (in normal geometry) can only have one right angle, no more. It is possible for a triangle to have all three right angles in spherical geometry (if you were to draw the triangle on a sphere).

### How many right angles can a triangle have on a sphere?

462 * * * * * It can have three.

### Is it possible for a triangle to have 2 right angles?

No. It is not possible to have two right angles.

### Is it possible to draw one triangle with two right angles?

No it is not possible to draw 1 triangle with 2 right angles because the angles in a triangle should equal to 180 degrees

Easily. /\ /__\

### Would Equilateral triangle can be a right triangle?

What you are asking, and I suspect you don't realise, is "can a triangle's angles add to 270o?" which of course it can not do on a two dimensional surface, It is possible on eg a sphere, think of the angles between 0o and 90o of longitude at the Equator and the Pole...

### In which country does a triangle have three right angles?

In the country of the Fourth Dimension! In our world a triangle can have three right angles on a sphere: consider the triangle formed by the Equator, Longitude 0o and Longitude 90o.

### Triangle with 1 right angles it possible?

Why yes it is possible in fact it's called the "Right Triangle" It has one right angle at the bottom and to other angles lower then 90&#730;

### What geometric shapes do not have right angles or angles larger than a right angle?

Circle, cone, cylinder, sphere and equilateral triangle for example.

No

### In spherical geometry which indicates the possible number of right angles a triangle may have?

All three interior angles of a spherical triangle may be right angles.

### Is it possible to draw an equiangular right triangle?

No, it is impossible to draw an equiangular right triangle. An equiangular triangle has three 60o angles. A right triangle has one 90o angle, and two 45o angles.
