yes
it wants you to find the perimeter so you have to first find the hypotenuse
the triangle is made up of two smaller triangles so you have to find the hypotenuse of one of them
since the bottom of both triangles combined is 16, what is the length of only one of those smaller triangles? HINT: its half of the bottom value
8
right. Are you familiar with the pythagorean theorem?
yup a2+b2=c2
okay, so, you have a and b now find c. A=8 and b=15. find C. dont forget to square them
do you know how?
yea
okay, so what is the length of the hypotenuse or one of the smaller triangles?
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?
the sides lengths are 16 17 and 17. whats the perimeter?
50?
yup! good job!
