An equilateral triangle, has 3 equal sides and 3 equal angles. However, in a regular equilateral triangles, none of these angles are right angles (90 degrees), they are all 60 degrees.

Six equilateral triangles are found in a regular 6 sided hexagon

None but there are 6 in a regular hexagon

That would depend on which hexagon and what triangles. A small hexagon might not have room for any large triangles. A large hexagon will have room fro many small triangles.If you have a regular hexagon and connect the vertices you will have drawn six equilateral triangles

5 equilateral triangles.

you can split a regular hexagon into 6 triangles

To form a hexagon, you would need a total of 6 triangles. Each side of the hexagon would be made up of one triangle, so when you combine all six sides, it creates a hexagon. This is because a hexagon is a polygon with six sides and six angles, and each side is made up of a single triangle.

Infinitely many. When you have one equilateral triangle, you can join up the midpoints of its sides to make into 4 more equilateral triangles. And then each one of those can be split up and so on.

Unless it is also equilateral, ie a regular hexagon, then none.

If you want a triangle per each side of a regular hexagon, the answer is 6.

i think that there are 112 but im not sure....
