i guess it mus be an equilateral,otherwise square is hard to fit inside

|I can't even imagine how it may b..O.o

means with vertices on the sides

Assume it is equilateral....how do u solve it?
watchmath
  • watchmath
Draw the height line and notice that you have two similar triangles.
watchmath
  • watchmath
well actually three similar triangles
angela210793

we want triangle's perimeter...
watchmath
  • watchmath
yes, I just give you a hint since I know that you are capable of doing this :)

doesn't the height split the triangle in 2 triangles? where did the 3rd come from? O.o
watchmath
  • watchmath
correct but you have another triangle on the right of your square
watchmath
  • watchmath
which is already there before you split by the height

I think i got it...i think i'm solving it...can u just tell me wht's h=? in a equilateral triangle? i don't remember it...:(:(
watchmath
  • watchmath
you can use pythagorean to find the h in terms of the length of the triangle
angela210793
  • angela210793
No i'm not looking 4 this 1...cause i'll use this later...it is a*sqr2/2 right?
watchmath
  • watchmath
I mean if you forget you can always use the Pythagorean theorem to find out that.
