No. In an equilateral triangle, all three angles are the same. Since they are not ninety degrees, you can't have a right triangle that is also an equilateral triangle.

An equilateral and right triangle are contradictory.

isoceles Triangle, Scalene triangle, Equilateral Triangle and Right Triangle.

Only right triangles have right angles. An equilateral triangle though can't have a right angle because all the angles in any type of triangle must add up to 180 degrees. For each angle to be equilateral, they must be 60 degrees, showing that there is no angle at 90 degrees in an equilateral triangle, which would signify that it would be right.

An equilateral triangle has 3 sides of equal length (that's what the word equilateral means) and also 3 equal angles, all of which are 60o. A right triangle, by definition, has one right angle of 90o. So if all the angles are 60o then it is not possible to have an angle of 90o, right? COOL!!!!!!!!!I GOT AN A+ on my portfolio thanks to this answer

An equilateral triangle can't be a right triangle since an equilateral triangle has all 60° angles, which are NOT right angles [measuring 90°]. If a triangle is a right triangle, then it has a right angle!

It is impossible for a right angled triangle to be equilateral unless it has a double triangle.

No

right triangle and equilateral triangle both have 3 sides

No because a right angle triangle has different properties to an equilateral triangle

no

No. In an equilateral triangle, all three angles are the same. Since they are not ninety degrees, you can't have a right triangle that is also an equilateral triangle.

It can be scalene or isosceles but not equilateral.

no. an equilateral triangle is also equiangular, so the angles are 60 degrees each. a right triangle cannot be equilateral

a right triangle has 1 right angle an equilateral triangle has none they are both triangles an equilateral triangle has three equal side a right triangle has only 1 or 2-THANKS! your pretty nice!

It can. Look at an equilateral triangle

Not in this Universe.
