Abigail made this argument: An equilateral triangle has three sides, all with equal lengths. For this reason, if I choose any two sides of an equilateral triangle and subtract the length of one side from the length of the other, since the two lengths are the same, the result is 0. According to the Triangle Inequality Theorem, the length of any side of a triangle must be less than the difference between the lengths of the two other sides. However, if the length of a side of an equilateral triangle was less than 0, it would be negative, and this isn’t possible. Therefore, equilateral triangles
