Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Since the given triangle has all the three sides equal the triangle is eqilateral and in a eqilateral triangle the angle at each vertex is  degrees.

To prove it mathematically by law of cosines a^2=b^2 + c^2 -2 bc cos(A)

where a,b,c are length of sides of triangle and A is the angle at vertex A.

by applying the condition that a=b=c we get cos(A)=1/2

hence angleA is 60degress

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
