Equiangular Triangle
From Latin: aequus "equal" , angulum "corner"
A triangle which has all three interior angles equal (congruent).

Notice it always remains an equiangular triangle. The angles A,B and C always remain equal in measure.
An equiangular triangle is a triangle where all three
interior angles
are equal in measure.
Because the interior angles of any triangle always add up to 180°,
each angle is always a third of that, or 60°
The sides of an equiangular triangle are all the same length (congruent), and so an equiangular triangle is really
the same thing as an equilateral triangle. See Equilateral Triangles.
Properties
 All three sides of an equiangular triangle are congruent (same length).
 The area of an equiangular triangle can be calculated in the
usual way,
but in this special case of an equilateral triangle, it is also given by the formula:
where S is the length of any one side.
 For an equiangular triangle, the radius of the
incircle is exactly half the radius of the
circumcircle.
Constructing an Equiangular Triangle
It is possible to construct an equiangular triangle of a given side length using just a compass and straightedge.
This uses the same method as for an equilateral triangle, see
