$\displaystyle d = \sqrt{(1 - (-2))^{2} + (3 - (-2))^{2}} = \sqrt{34}$

Similarly, find the other lengths of the triangle and compare them. You know that equilateral triangles have equal sides, isoceles triangles have 2 equal sides, and scalene triangles have no equal sides.

For the questions involving the circle, you did it for r = 3. It's not any different using r = 10 and r = $\displaystyle \sqrt{3}$.
