the perimeter is just like before; just divide it by 3; the area tho is nit a linear measurement and needs some work to it

\[Area = \frac{1}{2}*base*height\] \[Area = \frac{1}{2}*\frac{base}{3}*\frac{height}{3}=\frac{1}{18}bh\]

if you just divided the measures in half, then your not matching this problem. It wants the measures divided by 3

i just checked out your other post; it was 6 for the bottom and 9 for the height ....

the normal area, is then: 1/2 x 54 as you stated

if we divide all the sides by 3; that will go to: 1/(2*3*3) x 54 or simply 1/18 x 54

which is also: 1/2 * 6/3 * 9/3 1/2 * 2 * 3 1/2 x 6

Man thanks your real good at this math.

we can say that if the sides are divided by 3, then the area is divided by 3^2
