Two equilateral triangles can form a rhombus- it can also be formed by using a higher number of isosceles triangles.

Two triangles make a rhombus

No. A rhombus has all four sides of equal length. To split a rhombus into only 2 triangles, it must be split along a diagonal; which means that 2 of the sides of one of the triangles must be the same length as the sides of the rhombus, which being equal mean the triangles must be (at least) isosceles - scalene triangles will not work. Further, as the diagonal will be a common length to each of the triangles (the length of their third sides), it will form the base (ie the side opposite the vertex between the sides of equal length) of the isosceles triangles, and so the triangles must be to congruent isosceles triangles. If the diagonal has the same length as the side of the rhombus, then the two congruent triangles will be congruent equilateral triangles.

Rhombus

No, they do not.

2 triangles make up a rhombus which has 4 interior angles adding to 360 degrees and a triangles has 3 interior angles add up to 180 degrees. Therefore: 360/180 = 2 triangles
