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
anonymous
  • anonymous
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?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yup a2+b2=c2
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay, so, you have a and b now find c. A=8 and b=15. find C. dont forget to square them
anonymous

do you know how?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yea
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay, so what is the length of the hypotenuse or one of the smaller triangles?
anonymous
  • anonymous
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?
anonymous
  • anonymous
the sides lengths are 16 17 and 17. whats the perimeter?
anonymous
  • anonymous
50?
