Let's work through them. Equilateral triangle: all sides (and angles) are equal Acute triangle: all angles less than 90 degrees Right triangle: 1 angle is exactly 90 degrees Isosceles triangle: two equal sides (and angles) Obtuse triangle: one angle greater than 90 degrees

^an acute triangle
whpalmer4

well, it is cute, too :-) but as you have drawn it, it is actually obtuse, top angle slightly larger than 90 degrees

Sorry I had to go somewhere to help my mom..so if A is wrong is it C? @mathstudent55

@ggcola I offered to work through them with you... As mathstudent55 showed, it is possible to make an acute triangle which is not an equilateral triangle. That rules out A We know that the sum of the interior angles of a triangle is 180 degrees, so it is not possible to have an obtuse triangle with a right angle, as those two angles alone would total more than 180 degrees. That rules out D You can make a right triangle with angles 30, 60 and 90 degrees. That is proof that not all right triangles are isosceles triangles. That rules out B. That leaves us with answer choice C: all equilateral triangles are also acute triangles. Well, if we have 3 equal angles and they total 180 degrees, each angle must be 1/3 of 180 degrees, or 60 degrees. 60 degrees is less than 90 degrees, so a triangle with 3 such angles is an acute triangle (all angles less than 90 degrees). Therefore, answer choice C is correct.
