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
triangle? What type of triangle is this?

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.
