### Is an equilateral triangle also isosceles?

An equilateral triangle has all sides measuring the same and an
isosceles triangle has 2 sides congruent, so they are not the
same.
Every equilateral triangle is also an isosceles triangle, but
not every isosceles triangle is an equilateral triangle.
Isosceles = at least two equal sides
Equilateral = three equal sides

### Is an equilateral triangle equal to an isosceles triangle?

An isosceles triangle has at least two congruent sides.
An equilateral triangle has three congruent sides.
So, an equilateral triangle is a special case of isosceles
triangles.
Since the equilateral triangle has three congruent sides, it
satisfies the conditions of isosceles triangle.
So, equilateral triangles are always isosceles triangles.

### If it is an equilateral triangle then it is an isosceles triangle?

Let us recall the definition of an isosceles triangle. An
isosceles triangle is a triangle with two equal or congruent sides.
In this definition, it is not stated that it has exactly two equal
sides.
An equilateral triangle has three equal or congruent sides. If
it has three equal sides, then it must have two equal sides.
Therefore, an equilateral triangle is considered as an isosceles
triangle.
But, an isosceles triangle is not necessarily an equilateral
triangle.
