Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah. 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Because each distance corresponds to the measure of one side of the triangle.
