 May 31st, 2014, 04:58 PM #4 Senior Member     Joined: Nov 2013 From: Baku Posts: 502 Thanks: 56 Math Focus: Geometry Let edges be a, b, c, and angles be $\displaystyle \alpha , \; \beta , \; \gamma$. $\displaystyle a, \; b, \; c, \; \alpha , \; \beta , \; \gamma \in \mathbb{R}$ and $\displaystyle a/b, \; b/c, \; c/a, \; \alpha / \beta , \; \beta / \gamma , \; \gamma / \alpha \in \mathbb{Q}$ Example is equilateral triangle. It is not easy to solve, hence edges and angles are not necessarily rational. Is there any other hints?

But the question remains unanswered for the equivalence class of triangles up to similarity.
