Measure the distance between the points and you will be able to make this determination. Are you familiar with the distance formula?

\[d = \sqrt{(x _{2}  x _{1})^{2} + (y _{2}  y _{1})^{2}}\]

Yeah. Measure the distance from T to V. Then measure the distance from V to S. Finally, measure the distance from S to T. If you get three different distances, for example, you would say Scalene.

Because each distance corresponds to the measure of one side of the triangle.
