There are some steps which will help us to draw equilateral triangle:
Step 1: First of all we need to draw a line segment on paper. This line can be of any length. Now name Line Segment as AB.
Step 2: Now we choose a Point and name it as P. Measure the length of line AB with help of compass. Place compass point on A and open it wide to point B. Now compass has width of sides of triangle. Do not change width of compass.
Step 3: Make two arcs from point P.
Step 4: Now select any of the two arcs and mark a point Q on that. It does not matter which arc you will select.
Step 5: Now put the point of compass on point Q. After this we have to draw another arc which passes through another arc. Name creating point as 'R'.
Step 6: Now with help of ruler, draw a line. This line will connect the points Q and R. Just like this we will connect points P and Q at last point R and P.
Step 7: Now we have three lines PQ, PR and QR. If we measure these three lines then we will find that all lines are of equal length.
