Best Answer

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
