# Two angles of a triangle measure 72 and 46?

So ? ^_^ You must want to find the third angle. It's 180º minus

the two you already have. So it's 62º.

### What is the measure of an acute base angle of the trapezoid of an isosceles triangle vertex of 46 degrees?

For an isosceles triangle with vertex 46 degrees, the sum of the
remaining two base angles is 180-46 = 134 degrees. Base angles are
equal because it's isosceles, so each angle is half of their sum.
134/2 = 67 degrees.
Thus, any isosceles trapezoid formed inside that isosceles
triangle by drawing parallel lines to the triangle's base, will
have base angle measures of 67 degrees, which are triangle's base
angles.

### Can a acute triangle have more than one acute angle?

Sure. What's wrong with 1 degree, 1 degree, and 178 degrees
?
It's kind of a flat, skinny triangle, but it's a triangle.

A valid point, but the triangle described above is not an acute
triangle but an obtuse triangle. In whole numbers, 46 deg, 46 deg
and 88 deg or 2 deg, 89 deg, 89 deg are the two most extreme ACUTE
triangles.
***
An equilateral triangle has three 60-degree angles. All
three of those are acute.

### Can 25 46 and 65 be the lengths of a triangle?

YES
For a triangle to exist then the sum of any two sides must be
greater than the third side.
25 + 46 = 71 > 65
25 + 65 = 90 > 46
46 + 65 = 111 > 25
If the sum of two sides equalled the third side then you would
have two straight lines laid on top of each other.
If the sum of two sides is less that the third side then it
impossible to create three vertices to enable a triangle to be
formed.
