Is the Sierpinski triangle composed of equilateral or isosceles triangles? I've seen references for both but I have a student asking which one it is... any help is here greatly appreciated.

Isosceles example:

Thanks in advance!

Doesn't matter, all kind of triangles can be used.

Visual comfort and readability would correlate with isosceles. Bilateral symmetry is important. Equilateral also would work well.
