How do you find the third side of a triangle when two sides are known?

Use Pythagoras' theorem or trigonometry depending on what type of triangle it is. ` Only if it is a right triangle you will be able to use Pythagoras' theorem. This formula states that a^2 + b^2 = c^2 Where a and b are your two of the sides and c is the hypotenuse of the triangle. f you know the hypotenuse but not one of the other sides you can manipulate this formula.

How do you find the area of a triangle given only the perimeter?

It is possible depending on what type of triangle it is. For instance if it was an equilateral triangle then all sides would be equal and then by means of Pythagoras' theorem you could work out the height of the triangle and using the formula: 1/2*base*height = area

What type of triangle is always an equiangular triangle?

An equilateral triangle.

What is the only type of triangle the Pythagorean Theorem can be used on without being given any other measurements besides the sides?

Simply because the Pythagorean Theorem is not true for any triangle that doesn't have a right angle in it. If a triangle has a right angle in it, then it satisfies the Theorem. If it hasn't, then it doesn't. And if it satisfies the Theorem, then it has a right angle in it, and if it doesn't, then it hasn't.
