# How to Draw an Equilateral Triangle Inside a Circle

## |

Drawing an equilateral triangle inside a circle is a fun geometry exercise that can be done with just a compass and a pencil. An equilateral triangle is a polygon with three equal sides and three equal angles. By inscribing an equilateral triangle inside a circle, you can create an interesting geometric design.

Drawing an equilateral triangle inside a circle is a classical geometric construction. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you achieve this. Follow these steps to create your equilateral triangle inside a circle:

• Compass
• Pencil
• Paper

### Step 1: Draw the Circle

Using your compass, draw a circle on your paper. Make sure to press down firmly to create a clear outline.

### Step 2: Mark the Diameter

With a straight edge, draw a diameter and extend it out from both sides. Mark the intersection with the circle as A and B.

### Step 3: Mark the Vertices

Place your compass point on the bottom of the circle and draw an arc that intersects the circle on both sides. These two intersection points will be two vertices of your equilateral triangle. Let’s name these intersection points as P and Q.

### Step 4: Connect the Vertices

Using your pencil, connect the two vertices P and Q with a straight line. This line will form the base of your equilateral triangle.

### Step 5: Complete the Triangle

Connect the third vertex A to the other two vertices P and Q using straight lines. You now have an equilateral triangle perfectly inscribed inside your circle, with vertices A, P, and Q.

### Conclusion

And there you have it! By following these simple steps, you can easily draw an equilateral triangle inside a circle. This technique can be used to create beautiful geometric designs and patterns. Have fun experimenting with different-sized circles and triangles!
