### What would a diagram look like that represents the statement If it is an equilateral triangle then it is isosceles?

Figure B. equilateral triangle (small circle) inside of isosceles triangle (big cirlce)

### Are isosceles triangle sometimes an equilateral triangle?

### Is isosceles triangle also an equilateral triangle?

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
