Answer

Obtuse scalene triangle

Work Step by Step

1. It has one angle greater than 90 degrees, therefore, it is obtuse angled. 2. Since the 96 degree angle is the largest angle, we know that the side opposite it must be more than either of the other two sides. This means the triangle has three different side lengths. Therefore, it is a scalene triangle. It is an obtuse scalene triangle.
