With one angle 60°, that leaves 180° - 60° = 120° as the sum of the other two angles.

An obtuse angle is one greater than 90° and less than 180°.

Thus as long as one of the other angles is greater than 90° and less than 120°, the other will be 120° less it.

Some possible other angles:

100° and 20°

100.5° and 19.5°

100.05° and 19.95°

100.025° and 19.975°

There are infinitely many numbers between 100 and 101, therefore there are infinitely many pairs of number whose sum is 120 where one of them lies between 100 and 101 (inclusive, or exclusive - it matter not which).

------------------------------------------

If you meant triangles with angles which are WHOLE numbers, then there are:

Smallest obtuse angle = 91°

Largest obtuse angle = 119°

→ there are 119 - 91 + 1 = 29 such triangles.

Infinitely many. The obtuse angle can have any value in the open interval (90, 120) degrees and since the angular measure is a continuous variable, there uncountable infinite number of possible values for the obtuse angle. Furthermore, for value of the obtuse angle, there are infinitely many possible lengths for the side between the 60 degree angle and the obtuse angle and so infinitely many similar triangles.

the obtuse angle cannot be greater than 120 degrees but there is an infinite number of unique triangles that can be made in the range from 90 to 120 degrees

### Do acute triangles have any measures greater than ninety degrees?

No only obtuse triangles have a measure over 90 degrees:)

### Is it false an obtuse triangle is never right?

It's true that an obtuse triangle is never right because obtuse triangles are bigger than right triangles, which are 90 degrees. Obtuse Triangles are always bigger than Right triangles(90 degrees) , so It is true.

### The angle that measures 115 degrees is it scalene or isosceles?

A 115 degree angle is classified as obtuse. Scalene and isosceles refer to types of triangles.

### What triangle measures 162 degrees?

An obtuse triangle measures 162 degrees.

### What are three ways to classify a triangles by its angles?

The three kinds of triangles are:right triangle :one of the angles is a right angle (i.e. measures 90 degrees)acute: All of the angles measures less than 90 degrees. A special case of acute isthe equiangular or equilateral triangle in which all angles measure 60 degrees;obtuse: One of the angles measure more than 90 degrees.

### A triangle whose angle measures 30 degrees 120 degrees and 30 degrees?

Once again the answer from The WikiAnswers Community is wrong. The triangle is an obtuse angled isosceles triangle. And, as inanimate objects, triangles are not usually prone to become pregnant!
