Proof of Scalene Triangle

  1. Feb 18, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Prove that a scalene triangle exists

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I really don't know how to approach this proof.... should I do a direct proof or maybe by contradiction? Any help would be great...

    The easiest way to show something exists is to demonstrate one. So pick three points in the xy plane that give vertices of a scalene triangle and then verify it is.
