**We need to answer two questions to solve problems**

**that involve “SOMETIMES (aka MAY BE)”, “NEVER”, and “ALWAYS”.**

**STEP 1:**Frame the first question to see if this combination is possible

*First question : Is it possible to draw an equilateral triangle that is acute?*

**STEP 2:**If the answer is “NO” – then answer automatically becomes “NEVER” and we are done. If, however, the answer is “YES”, then we need to see if it is “ALWAYS” true or “SOMETIMES” true.

First answer: “YES” since all angles of an equilateral triangle are 60. So, we need to move to STEP 3.

**STEP 3:**If the answer is “YES”, then ask the question to see if it is possible to make the combination not work.

Second question: Is it possible to draw an equilateral triangle that is not acute?

**STEP 4:**If the answer to question in STEP 4 is “NO” – then answer automatically becomes “ALWAYS”; however, if the answer is “YES”, then answer to our question becomes “SOMETIMES”.

Second answer: “NO” – since it is not possible to draw an equilateral triangle that is not acute. So, the answer is “ALWAYS”.

**Therefore, an equilateral triangle is ALWAYS an acute triangle.**
