9.

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?

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