Acute triangle.

Angle measures would be 44, 56 and 80 degrees.

#### Explanation:

For the given ratio of angles, let the angles be 11x, 14x and 20x. The sum of the angles would be 11x+14x+20x = 45x = 180. This gives x= 4,

The angles would thus be 44, 56 and 80 degrees.

Since all angle measures are acute, the triangle would be Acute triangle.
