### How can you use a right angle to determine the classiacation of another angle?

If the other angle is smaller than the right angle, it is an
acute angle.
If the other angle is the same as the right angle, it is a
right angle.
If the other angle is bigger than the right angle but smaller
than two right angles, it is an obtuse angle.
If the other angle is the same as two right angles, it is a
straight angle.

### Difference between right isosceles acute scalene?

A right angled triangle has one angle that is 90 degrees. The
other two must be acute and may (but need not) be equal to one
another.
An acute triangle has all its angles less than 90 degrees. They
may be all the same, two of them the same or all different.
An isosceles triangle has two angles the same (and hence acute).
The third angle can be acute, right or obtuse.
A scalene triangle has three unequal angles. Two of them...

### How do you bisect an obtuse angle?

In the same way that you bisect an acute triangle.
Alternatively, you could extend one of the rays of the obtuse angle
so that you have an acute angle. Bisect that angle and then draw a
perpendicular to the bisector of the acute angle through the
vertex.

### What are four ways you can prove two right triangles are congruent?

1. The side angle side theorem, when used for right triangles is
often called the leg leg theorem. it says if two legs of a right
triangle are congruent to two legs of another right triangle, then
the triangles are congruent. Now if you want to think of it as SAS,
just remember both angles are right angles so you need only look at
the legs.
2. The next is the The Leg-Acute Angle Theorem which states if a
leg and an...

### Can a right triangle be acute or scalene or isosceles?

A right triangle may be isosceles or scalene (though not at the
same time), but never acute, since an acute triangle is defined as

definition has one 90Â° angle.

### How do you find the angle of a right triangle with the length of two legs?

-- Like every triangle, a right triangle has three interior
angles.
-- Unlike any other triangle, one of the angles in a right
triangle is a right angle.
The other two are both acute angles.
-- One acute angle is the angle whose cosine is length of
one leg / length of hypotenuse
-- Other acute angle is the angle whose sine is length of
the same leg / length of the hypotenuse
-- The length of the hypotenuse is the square root of...

### Can you have a triangle with acute right and obtuse angles on it?

No. "Obtuse" means more than 90 degrees. "Obtuse" plus a right
angle = more than 180 degrees.
But the triangle has exactly 180 degrees in its 3 angles. So the
same triangle can't have a right angle
and an obtuse angle in it.

### Is there any such thing as an obtuse right triangle?

No. A obtuse angle cannot be a right triangle- it is so wrong
that it can't even be a left angle (While true, this part is of
course, a joke...).
There are two ways we name our triangles: using angles and how
long the angles' sides are. The angles: there are three. The
measurements: there are also three.
The measurement triangles (aka. how long the angles and sides
are) come in three types: the equilateral, the isosceles, and the
scalene.
The equilateral triangle has...

###### Asked in Geometry

### Is an isosceles triangle an example of an acute angle?

For starters, here are the basic rules of triangles.
A right angle is 90 degrees.
An acute angle is less than 90 degrees.
An obtuse angle is more than 90 degrees.
A triangle's angles always add up to 180 degrees.
An isosceles triangle has two sides that are the exact same
length and thus two same angles.
Now, an isosceles triangle can have all acute angles. For
example, its angles can measure in degrees at 80, 50, and 50.
However, isosceles triangles can also...
