Triangle Geometry: Sides and Edges

If the angles of a triangle are equal, does it necessarily mean that 
the sides are also equal?

Hi there!

Within the same triangle, if all three angles are the same, you have 
an equilateral triangle (all three sides equal).

In an isosceles triangle - which has two angles equal to one another -
the sides opposite these angles are equal.

Hope this helps!
