### Equilateral Triangle

#### Lesson Objective

In this lesson, we will learn about equilateral triangles...

#### About This Lesson

In this lesson, we will:

- learn what are equilateral triangles
- see some examples on identifying them.

This lesson shows you the concepts that you should know about a line that is parallel to the x-axis or y-axis of the coordinate plane. Also, we will see some examples on determining its equation.

The study tips below will give you a short summary on this.

The math video below will explain in depth about this. Furthermore, it will show some examples so that you can understand this lesson better.

### Study Tips

#### Tip #1

When a triangle has three sides (edges) of equal length, this triangle can be called an equilateral triangle. See some examples below:

#### Tip #2

Since this type of triangle has three sides of equal length, each of its internal angles is 60^{Â°}. See the picture below:

In this lesson, we will learn about equi. triangle.

00:00:08.230

A triangle is an equi. triangle, when all the sides of the triangle, have the same length.

00:00:16.030

Now, to demonstrate this, let's move vertex 'B' to the right.

00:00:22.150

Here, we can see that when all the 3 sides have the same length, we get an equi. triangle.

00:00:32.020

Also, it is important to note that, each of its internal angles is equal to 60 degrees.

00:00:40.130

Let's see some examples.

00:00:44.010

Is this an equi. triangle?

00:00:48.030

Since this triangle has 3 sides of equal length, this is an equi. triangle.

00:00:55.170

Next example, how about this triangle?

00:01:02.020

We can see that, all these angles are 60 degrees.

00:01:07.070

This means that, these 3 sides must have the same length.

00:01:12.140

Hence, this is an equi. triangle.

00:01:17.130

Last example, now, only these 2 sides have the same length.

00:01:25.130

Therefore, this is not an equi. triangle.

00:01:30.160

That is all for this lesson.
