In equilateral triangle,

  • All sides are equal
  • All angles all equal 60°

In equilateral ∆ ABC,

  • AB = AC = BC
  • ∠A = ∠B = ∠C = 60°

But, why are all angles 60°?

In equilateral triangle, all angles are equal.

Let ∠A = ∠B = ∠C = x

Equilateral Triangle - Part 2

In ∆ABC

Sum of angles is 180°

  ∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180°

  x + x + x = 180° 

  3x = 180°         

  x = (180°)/3

  x = 60°

 

So, ∠A = ∠B = ∠C = 60 °

Thus, all angles are 60°
