That depends on the sizes of the other 2 angles if it's a right angle triangle then the other acute angle would be 70 degrees.

An acute angle measures less than 90 degrees. While a triangle may have 2 acute angles and 1 obtuse, this is not a requirement. A triangle may have three acute angles such and a 60-60-60 equilateral triangle.

A right angle triangle always has a 90 degree angle and two acute angles which altogether add up to 180 degrees.

A scalene triangle could have three acute angles, one right angle and two acute angles, or one obtuse angle and two acute angles.

no an acute triangle does not have a right angle. if it had a right angle, it would be called a right triangle. to be an acute triangle, the triangle needs two angles that are smaller than 90 degrees.

A triangle which measures less than 90%

If all three angles of a triangle measure less that 90 degrees (if all three angles are acute), the triangle is an acute triangle. A triangle that has a right angle (an angle the measures exactly 90 degrees) is a right triangle. (The other 2 angles will be acute angles.) A triangle that has an angle that is greater than 90 degrees (an obtuse angle), is an obtuse triangle. (The other 2 angles will be acute angles.)

The acute triangle will have 3 different acute angle that add up to 180 degrees

All triangles have 3 interior angles that add up to 180 degrees and they are:- Right angle triangle: 90 degree angle and 2 acute angles Obtuse triangle: An obtuse angle and 2 acute angles Scalene triangle: 3 acute angles of different sizes Isosceles triangle: 2 equal angles and another angle Equilateral triangle: 3 equal angles that each measures 60 degrees

That depends on the sizes of the other 2 angles if it's a right angle triangle then the other acute angle would be 70 degrees.

It will be a right angle triangle with a 90 degree angle and 2 acute angles

An acute angle measures less than 90 degrees. While a triangle may have 2 acute angles and 1 obtuse, this is not a requirement. A triangle may have three acute angles such and a 60-60-60 equilateral triangle.

The other acute angle in that triangle is 40 degrees.
