The triangle is an obtuse angled isosceles triangle

7 > 4.. so picturize the triangle with the angle between the two equal sides > 90.

agree with obtuse

if you don't know how to solve it, use your knowledge.
draw a right isoceles triangle, it should be 4,4, and the last side should be squre root(32)
Now we have 7 which is squre root (49), so we know this triangle is not a right triangle but we also know that the side is bigger so the angle has to be bigger than 90 degrees :wink: so obtuse :-D

Great explanation Antoine!

It must be a stubbornly obtuse triangle.
