no it cant be...

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".

It can. Look at an equilateral triangle

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)

An isosceles triangle, remember the two s's, and that's how I remember this name goes with the triangle thy has 2 congruent sides!

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.

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

because triangles only have 3 angles that add up to 180

An equilateral triangle can't be a right triangle since an equilateral triangle has all 60° angles, which are NOT right angles [measuring 90°]. If a triangle is a right triangle, then it has a right angle!

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

Triangles whether acute, obtuse, equilateral or scalene will only ever have angles that add to 180 degrees.
