# Show that the angles of an equilateral triangle are 60° each.

**Solution:**

Let's draw an equilateral triangle ABC as shown below.

Therefore,

AB = BC = AC

∴ ∠C = ∠A = ∠B (Angles opposite to equal sides of a triangle are equal)

Let ∠A = ∠B = ∠C be x.

In △ ABC,

∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180° (Angle sum property of a triangle)

⇒ x + x + x = 180°

⇒ 3x = 180°

⇒ x = 60°

∴ ∠A = ∠B = ∠C = 60°

Hence, in an equilateral triangle, all interior angles are of measure 60°.
