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

What are some triangles?

isocles, equilateral, obtuse, acute, scalene, right

Are scalene triangles all obtuse?

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.

Is a triangle symmetric?

'Isocoles' and 'Equalateral' triangles are, scalene, right angled, and obtuse triangles are not.

What are the four types of triangles?

right obtuse acute and scalene

What is three types of triangles?

They are: right angle, isosceles and equilateral triangles There are also scalene and obtuse triangles

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.

What traingle don't have a right angle?

Triangles without right angles are:- Scalene triangles Obtuse triangles Isosceles triangles Equilateral triangles

What are some different triangles?

You have acute, right, and obtuse triangles when referring to the measure of the largest angle, and you have equilateral, isosceles, and scalene triangles when referring to the congruency of the triangle's sides.

How do you classify triangles in two different ways?

Triangles are classed as: scalene, right angle, obtuse, isosceles and equilateral

What are the kinds of triangles according to measure of their sides and angles?

They are: equilateral, isosceles, obtuse, scalene and right angle triangles

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.

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.
