Four! Right? There are equilateral triangles, isoceles triangles, rightangled triangles and scalene?
But what happens if you cut a square in half corner to corner? What kind of triangle is that?
Well it's rightangled and it is also isoceles! So there are different kinds of isoceles triangle. Some are rightangled. Some are not!
What other kinds of isoceles triangle can you have? Can you have one only with acute angles? Can you have one with an obtuse angle?
What about other triangles? Can you have a triangle with two right angles? What about two obtuse angles? Why?
There's a lot more here to investigate than first met the eye...
