If one corner is right,

the other corners are together 90 degrees.

So they're both still variable.

So: no not all right triangles are similar

### Do all triangles have right angle?

No. Only right triangles do, and not all triangles can be right
triangles. Equilateral triangles, for example, are always
60°-60°-60°. Isosceles and scalene triangles can be right
triangles; all isosceles triangles have the additional useful
property of being able to be split into two right triangles.

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic, Geometry

### Are all isosceles right triangles congruent?

The geometrical figures, including isosceles triangles, are
congruent if they are identical in shape and size.
If they are of the same shape but not of the same size, then
they are similar triangles. For two similar triangles, there is a
correspondence between their vertices such that corresponding
angles are equal and the ratios of the corresponding sides are
equal.
Thus, not all isosceles triangles are congruent.

### Is sss a way to find if triangles are similar?

Triangles are congruent if all three sides in one
triangle are congruent to the corresponding sides in the
other.
When two triangles have corresponding sides with identical
ratios, the triangles are similar.
Of course if triangles are congruent, they are also similar.
