Is a scalene always isosceles?

No. A scalene triangle is never isosceles. An isosceles triangle has two equal sides. A scalene triangle has none.

Is an isosceles and a scalene triangle always sometimes or never similar?


Are two isosceles triangle always similar?


How many angles do a acute isosceles triangle have?

It doesn't matter if a triangle is isosceles, scalene, obtuse, acute... There are always 3 angles in a triangle (which add up to 180).

Is a scalene triangle always a isosceles?

No, those are two different types of triangles. An isosceles triangle has two sides of the same length and one side of different length; a scalene triangle has three sides which are all of different length.

What is the sum of dergrees in a triangle?

the sum of the internal angles of a triangle, no matter whether isosceles, equilateral or scalene, is always 180 degrees

How are equilateral isosceles and scalene different?

And Equilateral Triangle has three EQUAL sides. Basically just your ordinary triangle. The Isosceles triangle usually has TWO equal sides, and one odd side,( not the same size in degrees.) A scalene Triangle also has TWO of the same sides, BUT- Its degrees are usually always different. I'll show you some examples. The first example below is an isosceles Triangle. The 2nd is the Scalene Triangle... Hope I helped...

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.

Are a scalene triangle and an isoceles triangles sometimes always or never similar?

Sometimes similar but it depends

Is a obtuse a scalene in a triangle?

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.

Is an isosceles triangle always an acute triangle?


Is a right triangle always an isosceles triangle?

No. An isosceles right triangle is a special case. There are many right triangles which are not isosceles.
