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.
When a triangle has three sides (edges) of equal length, this triangle can be called an equilateral triangle. See some examples below:
Since this type of triangle has three sides of equal length, each of its internal angles is 60°. See the picture below:

In this lesson, we will learn about equi. triangle.
A triangle is an equi. triangle, when all the sides of the triangle, have the same length.
Now, to demonstrate this, let's move vertex 'B' to the right.
Here, we can see that when all the 3 sides have the same length, we get an equi. triangle.
Also, it is important to note that, each of its internal angles is equal to 60 degrees.
Let's see some examples.
Is this an equi. triangle?
Since this triangle has 3 sides of equal length, this is an equi. triangle.
Next example, how about this triangle?
We can see that, all these angles are 60 degrees.
This means that, these 3 sides must have the same length.
Hence, this is an equi. triangle.
Last example, now, only these 2 sides have the same length.
Therefore, this is not an equi. triangle.
That is all for this lesson.
