What triangle is formed with three sides of different lengths?

A scalene triangle. In a scalene triangle, there are no congruent sides or angles. In an isosceles triangle, at least two congruent sides and angles. In an equilateral triangle, all three sides and angles are congruent, with angles that always measure sixty degrees. Note: an equilateral triangle also classifies as an isosceles triangle, as it meets the definition of an isosceles triangle mentioned above.
