Can a right triangle be scalene and isosceles?

An acute triangle has all angles measuring less than 90º. Note: It is possible for an acute triangle to also be scalene, isosceles, or equilateral. Note: It is possible for a right triangle to also be scalene or isosceles. An obtuse triangle has one angle measuring more than 90º but less than 180º (an obtuse angle).

Simply so, can a right triangle be scalene isosceles or equilateral?

In a right triangle, one of the angles is a right angle—an angle of 90 degrees. A right triangle may be isosceles or scalene. In an acute triangle, all angles are less than right angles—each one is less than 90 degrees. An acute triangle may be equilateral, isosceles, or scalene.

Furthermore, is it possible to have a scalene isosceles triangle? Explanation: Isosceles triangles has two equal sides, and two equal angles. Scalene triangles cannot have equal sides, nor equal angles. That means that isosceles triangles never can be scalene.

Subsequently, one may also ask, can a scalene triangle have a right angle?

Answer and Explanation: A scalene triangle can have a right angle, or an angle with measure 90°, but not all scalene triangles have a right angle.

What does a right scalene triangle look like?

ANSWER: A right triangle is a triangle with a right angle (90°). A scalene triangle is a triangle which has no two sides equal. So a right scalene triangle is a triangle with a right angle and with no two sides equal.
