By definition, an equilateral triangle has congruent sides. "Equi"has the same root as the word "equal," which is synonymous with "congruent," and "lateral" is based on the Latin word for "side."

No. I think it can. An isosceles triangle by definition has two equal sides. It is possible to draw a triangle with a right angle and two equal sides. The word isosceles is actually a Greek one standing for: having (two) equal sides. I thought that, in English, isosceles stands for "equilateral". If not, then yes it can be a triangle with two equal sides adjacent to the right angle. (hypotenuse excluded, anyway)

A triangle.
