Can I get an equilateral triangle within a circle by drawing a random triangle first, adding up the sides of the triangle, & dividing by 3 ?

Consider all the points of the triangle to be on the circle.  Once you get the total length of the sides of the random triangle and divide by 3, will that new number give the length of the sides of an equilateral triangle that can be drawn into the circle with all points again on the circle?
