Triangles can be *classified* according to the relative lengths of their sides:

In an equilateral triangle all sides have the same length. An equilateral triangle is also a regular polygon with all angles measuring 60°.

In an **isosceles** triangle, two sides are equal in length. An isosceles triangle also has ~~two~~ angles of the same measure; namely, the angles opposite to the two sides of the same length; this fact is the content of the Isosceles triangle theorem. Some mathematicians define an isosceles triangle to have exactly two equal sides, whereas others define an isosceles triangle as one with at least two equal sides. The latter definition would make all equilateral triangles isosceles triangles. The 45–45–90 Right Triangle, which appears in the Tetrakis square tiling, is isosceles.
