Mr.Lewis drew a triangle measurement, x, .5x, and 1.5x. What is the best classification for this triangle?

a. acute, scalene
b. obtuse, scalene
c. right, equilateral
d. equiangular, equilateral
e. obtuse. isosceles
(i don't understand how to solve this problem)

• math -

since any side must be less than the sum of the other two sides, this triangle is a straight line.

The two short sides together just equal the third side, so the triangle collapses.
