**equilateral triangle**is a

**triangle**in which all three sides are equal. In the familiar Euclidean geometry, an

**equilateral triangle**is also equiangular; that is, all three internal angles are also congruent to each other and are each 60°.

Beside this, what is equilateral triangle example?

In geometry, an **equilateral triangle** is a **triangle** whose all three sides are of equal length. The sides of an **equilateral triangle** are congruent. We can find the shape of a **triangle** in a rack in billiards, a road side sign board and a slice of pizza, around us.

One may also ask, what is the meaning of isosceles triangle? In geometry, an **isosceles triangle** is a **triangle** that has two sides of equal length. The two equal sides are called the legs and the third side is called the base of the **triangle**.

Similarly, you may ask, which is the best definition of an equilateral triangle?

An **equilateral triangle** is one in which all three sides are congruent (same length). Because it also has the property that all three interior angles are equal, it really the same thing as an equiangular **triangle**. See Equiangular **triangles**.

What is the sum of equilateral triangle?

Since the sum of a triangle's angles is always 180 **degrees**, each angle in an equilateral triangle must measure 60 **degrees**. This is because we must divide 180 **degrees** evenly between the three angles: 180 / 3 = 60.
