By: Hope

Isosceles, Equilateral, Scalene, Acute, Obtuse, and Right!

# ISOSCELES

An isosceles triangle is tall and skinny the two tall sides are the same and the short one is different. It makes a shape like a party hat.

# EQUILATERAL

On an equilateral triangle, all three sides are the same length.

# SCALENE

All of the sides on a scalene triangle are different and all the angles are different.

# ACUTE

On an acute triangle all the angles in it are less then 90 degrees. It can be the same as an equilateral triangle.

# OBTUSE

In a obtuse triangle one of the angles is over 90 degrees.

# RIGHT

A right triangle is on its side. The angle on its side is a 90 degree angle. It usually has a square where the right angle is.
