P=9in a=9/3=3in High of triangle (all corners are 60 degrees):\[h=a \times \sin60^o=a \sqrt3 /2\] \[Area=a \times h/2=a^2\sqrt3/2=9\sqrt{3}/2}\]

in case of an equilateral triangle, perimeter = 3 * side so side = perimeter/3 so each side = 9 in/3 = 3 in root(3) Area of an equilateral triangle =  * s² where s = length of side 4 root(3) 9 root(3) so area =  * (3cm)² =  cm² 4 4

Apothem is 1/3 rd from high, right? Then h=3*6=18 in

\[Area=a \times h /2=a=2h/\sqrt3=2h^2/(\sqrt3 \times 2)=324/\sqrt3=108\sqrt3\]
