if you mean ALL sides equal then no, because for a triangle to have ALL equal sides all angles must be equal (60 degrees), and an obtuse triangle must have an angle with 91 or more degrees. but if you mean TWO sides equal then yes. for example, a triangle with angles 40, 40 & 100 degrees would have two equal sides.

A regular square or a rhombus if you mean all four sides are equal in length, a parallelogram if you mean the opposite sides are equal.

A parallelogram is a four sided shape where opposite sides are parallel and equal lengths. If you mean that ALL sides are equal lengths, you are looking for a rhombus.

A scalene triangle has three unequal sides, an equilateral triangle has three equal sides. An isosceles triangle has two equal sides. Because with a scalene triangle only two sides are equal but with a equilateral triangle that would mean all sides are equal. (scalene = 2 sides & equilateral = all sides equal)

No, all sides are UNEQUAL. Nope, all different. All sides equal would be equilateral which means "equal sides"

equilateral means equal sides example equilateral triangle means triangle with all sides equal.

A parallelogram is a four sided shape where opposite sides are parallel and equal lengths. If you mean that ALL sides are equal lengths, you are looking for a rhombus.

A scalene triangle has three unequal sides, an equilateral triangle has three equal sides. An isosceles triangle has two equal sides. Because with a scalene triangle only two sides are equal but with a equilateral triangle that would mean all sides are equal. (scalene = 2 sides & equilateral = all sides equal)

Equilateral means that all sides are equal in length.

No, all sides are UNEQUAL. Nope, all different. All sides equal would be equilateral which means "equal sides"

The term scalene is used to mean that the sides are all unequal, which is to say, all different.

It usually means that all sides are equal as in the form of an equilateral triangle.

A parallelogram where all sides are equal is a square.
