Is it possible to make an acute scalene triangle?

No, it's not. you all have terrible answers. If it's scalene, it can't have three acute angles. If you can make a triangle that is acute and scalene, show me.

It's true. I am begging you, try to tell me, the math nerd, that he's wrong.

I thought an equilateral triangle is 60* all around. And less then 90 is acute.

No, you have a bunch of facts mixed up (no offence if that sounds rude at all). An equilatteral is a triangle that has equal side lengths and angles. Also, I'd like to add that all triangles will add up to 180*. Now back to the original question, a scalene has NO equal side lengths, therefore making it impossible to have only acute angles. think about it in your head, no matter what triangle you imagine, you will never be able to think up an acute/scalene triangle. I spent about 20 minutes making sure i was right. I even asked my math teacher.

@GHOSTDADpart7: Oh, and i understand where you went wrong, you had the "less than 90*" part right, but it's not all around. each angle is less than 90*. LOL, isn't it hilarious how for a good portion of the year I'm failing math, despite me having some of the the highest test scores in my entire shool district? pffft, homework? NOT ON MY SCHEDULE. :) im struggleing just to remember to take my meds in the morning, let alone staying in the advanced math class.

What he said was scalene acute right?

Look here too. This is a scalene triangle

Hmmm tell your "teacher" to check his facts

What are you trying to do, give me a virus? Seeing as you at least posted a link, i am going to take your word for it. Well i guess i was wrong, but i still don't see how you could do it.

And don't give me the attitude, please. Oh, i was wrong ONE TIME. You're so smart, you out witted a 7th grader with a learning disability (that DIDN'T use the internet to get his answer) in a geometry question. hmmf...you were the one that said an equilatteral triangle was 60 degres all around. no offence.

Scalene just means different length lines.
Acute means angles less then 90.

If you drew a triangle using acute angles with a ruler and don'tmeasure your lines, you will most likely have a scalene acute triangle... Technically. Ps spend more time on math.. It's the only thing that is usefull after school

An equilateral triangle is 60* all around . 60?3=180. Wow man, look it up on Wikipedia for f?ks sake. Your a strange little kid. An do yourself a favor and look up what your talking about b4 you open your mouth

Sorry for being harsh but damn son. I can totally break it down for you if you like so you can get it. You think an equilateral is a triangle that has the same degrees all around but that is only possible with 60*. There's no way to make a triangle with 50*. You can start out making a triangle with two 50* angles but the last one will be 80* no matter what. Therefor giving you 180*. That is how triangles work. Basic Euclidean geometry.
Again sorry for being an ass. Btw im a carpenter so I know quite abit about geometry. And one of my hobbies is sacred geometry. BAM!
