Prove that each angle of an equilateral triangle is 60°.
Given to prove that each angle of an equilateral triangle is 60°
Let us consider an equilateral triangle ABC
Such that AB= BC= CA
AB=BC ⇒ ∠A=∠C ................(1) [Opposite angles to equal sides are equal]
and BC = AC ⇒∠B = ∠A ……..(2)
From (1) and (2), we get
∠A = ∠B = ∠C ..............(3)
We know that
Sum of angles in a triangle =180°
Hence, each angle of an equilateral triangle is 60°.
