Point P is a point inside triangle ABC. Is triangle ABC equilateral?

Statement #1: Point P is equidistant from the three vertices A, B, and C.

Statement #2: Triangle ABC has two different lines of symmetry that pass through point P.

Geometry is a beautiful topic! This question comes from a bank of 10 DS practice questions on Geometry. To see the others as well as the OE for this particular question, see:

Hi,

lets see the statements-

Statement #1: Point P is equidistant from the three vertices A, B, and C.
This is same as THREE points on a circle and point P is the CENTER of the circle...
here we can have various combination of picking 3 points on circle and most will not make an equilateral triangle..
ans can be YES and NO both..
Insuff

Statement #2: Triangle ABC has two different lines of symmetry that pass through point P.
for symmetry, the line has to pass through one vertice and the center of opposite side...
Only 1 such line would most likely make an isosceles triangle, BUT two such lines will happen only in equilateral triangle..
Suff

Do we need to know what lines of symmetry means? Never heard that term before in any gmat geometry question
