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?

**Ms. Sue**, Tuesday, March 26, 2013 at 6:29pmScalene, isosceles, and equilateral all refer to the number of equal (or unequal) sides. Acute, right, and obtuse refer to their angles.
