okay, so what is the length of the hypotenuse or one of the smaller triangles?

Sunshine447 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yup so now you have the value of the bottom of the triangle and the value of both sides. To find the perimeter you have to add the values of all the sides. So whats the perimeter of the triangle?
