Construct a Triangle PQR in which PQ = 9 cm, angle PQR = 38 degrees, 
and angle QPR = 67 degrees. Measure angle PRQ and the length of sides 
PR and RQ. What is the the sum of the three interior angles of the

Angle PRQ = 105 degrees and RQ = 8.577   RP = 5.736

This triangle has all its sides and all its angles different from each 
other, and is known as a 'scalene' triangle.
