Compared to general triangles, an equilateral triangle is a special type of triangle because it has three sides of exactly the same length. In the following section, we will use an example with a given side length to calculate the area, the perimeter, the angles and the heights for the equilateral triangle. To do this, we will use the formulas and calculation rules that have been simplified specifically for equilateral triangles.
On the page of our Triangle Calculator, you will find a lot of information on calculating not only equilateral but also general triangles. Alternatively, visit our guides on the topics 'Area of a Triangle' and 'Right-angled Triangles'.
