Solution 1





Let ABC and DEF be two right triangles.

Solution 2



Solution 3



Solution 4

  Let us consider that ABC is an equilateral triangle.
So, AB = BC = AC
Now, AB = AC  C = B         (angles opposite to equal sides of a triangle are equal)
    
We also have
AC = BC    
 B = A             (angles opposite to equal sides of a triangle are equal)
    
So, we have
A = B = C
    Now, in ΔABC
A + B + C = 180o
 A + A + A = 180o
 3A = 180o
 A = 60o
 A = B = C = 60o
Hence, in an equilateral triangle all interior angles are of 60o.
