**Triangles by angle measure**4. Create an acute triangle. An acute triangle has 3 acute angles. 5. Create a right triangle. A right triangle has 1 right angle. 6. Create an obtuse triangle. An obtuse triangle has 1 obtuse angle.

**Triangle Combos**Can you create.... 7. An acute triangle that is also scalene? isosceles? equilateral? 8. A right triangle that is also scalene? isosceles? equilateral? 9. An obtuse triangle that is also scalene? isosceles? equilateral?
