Name the triangles that are classified by angles. (1 point)

right, scalene, isosceles
scalene, isosceles, equilateral
acute, right, obtuse
obtuse, isosceles, acute

I chose the answer "scalene, isosceles, equilateral" but the correct answer is "acute, right, obtuse". Why is that?

5 answers

  1. Scalene, isosceles, and equilateral all refer to the number of equal (or unequal) sides. Acute, right, and obtuse refer to their angles.
