### 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.

### Is an isosceles triangle is also an equilateral triangle?

A triangle with all sides equal is called an
equilateral triangle, and a triangle with no sides
equal is called a scalene triangle. An equilateral
triangle is therefore a special case of an isosceles
triangle having not just two, but all three sides and angles
equal. So an isosceles triangle is not an equilateral
triangle because all sides are not equal.

### Is an isosceles triangle equilateral?

No. But I suppose an equilateral triangle is isosceles. An
equilateral triangle is one with three equal sides. The
requirements are less stringent for an isosceles triangle. All it
needs is two equal sides and it's entitled to take the name
'isosceles', but if the third side isn't also equal to those
two, then it can't join the 'equilateral' club.
