Need math homework help, please!

My son is trying to do his homework. I suck at math, so I do not understand this question at all to be able to help him. Can someone help me? Here it is:

Matt drew a diagram of a triangular garden in which one angle was greater than a right angle. How would you classify this shape?

To me, the answer is triangle, but somehow I just know that isn't what they want.

  • It's an obtuse triangle, since one angle is greater than 90 degrees.

  • there 3 types of triangles

    right
    isosceles
    scalene

    to make sure he learns this, ask his to look up and record the definitions for each triangle. That will help him answer the question.
