What is a scalene triangle?

Scalene Triangles
Welcome to MooMooMath. Today we are talking about Scalene Triangles. A scalene triangle is one in which all three angles are different. So let's look at two examples. I'm going to mark these triangles 3 inches, 4 inches, and 5 inches. All three sides are different lengths. This triangle over here is marked such that all three sides are the same. The mark on the side represents equal lengths. This is actually an equilateral triangle. Now let's look at a scalene triangle based on angles. You have a forty five degree angle, a forty five degree angle, and a ninety degree angle, and over here you have a 60 degree angle, a 30 degree angle, and a ninety degree angle. So based on angles which of these is a scalene angle? This one here (circles the triangle with 60, 30, 90 degree angles) because all three angles are different or all three sides are different. The other triangle these two angles are the same meaning these two legs are the same so this one is actually what they call an isosceles triangle. So let's look at the rules. The definition is all sides are different lengths and all angles are different measures. So our 3, 4, 5, is our example. Hope this video was helpful.
