Equilateral triangle has all three sides equal in length.
Scalene triangle has all three sides of different length.


Note that all three sides in a scalene triangle are different. If two are of the same length and different from the third side, it's neither equilateral nor scalene triangle.

For instance, a triangle with side lengths of #3#, #4# and #5# (in some measurement units) is a scalene triangle, but that with length #4#, #4# and #5# is not.
