Because if you take a triangle and double the length of each side, you get a much bigger triangle which is therefore not congruent (they do not match in every respect, even though the angles are replicated). In this case they are called "similar".

You Cant. Because A Hexagon Is A Six Sided Shape. And An Equilateral Triangle Is Equal. So You Can Because Everything (As In Sides And Angles Will Be Congruent)

It cant be possible because a triangle only consists of 180 degree angles !! As 90 + 90 = 180 thus 2 or more than 2 angles in a triangle cant be right angles i.e. 90 degree :D

The 3 interior angles of a triangle add up to 180 degrees no more and no less

because its a right triangle For a triangle to be equilateral, all angles and sides must be of a same length. Since the total of the angles of a triangle can only be up to 180, it is impossible for there to be three 90 degree angles, which equal to 270 degrees..

It can. Look at an equilateral triangle

No, it cant. In order to be equiangular, a triangle also has to be equilateral. Equilateral means all three sides are the same, while scalene means none of the three sides are the same.

An obtuse angle is greater than 90 degrees; a triangle only has 180 degrees in all three angles (inside angles). two obtuse angles exceed 180 degrees.
