Napoleon’s Theorem states the following. Let ABC be an arbitrary triangle. With the three sides of the triangle as bases, construct three equilateral triangles, each one outside △ ABC. Next, mark the centres P , Q , R of these three equilateral triangles. Napoleon’s theorem asserts that △ PQR is equilateral, irrespective of theshape of △ ABC.
