## hba 3 years ago what is the formula for the perimeter of the triangle @angela210793 @hartnn

1. hartnn

sum of sides

2. hba

that cannot be :(

3. hartnn

perimeter of any polygon is sum of its sides.

4. hba

The vertices are L=(1,5),M=(-3,-3) and N=(3,1)

5. hartnn

find sides from that ....

6. hba

So i got (1/3,1) < which looks wrong :(

7. hartnn

distance formula

8. hba

Oh ok ok got it :)

9. hba

Slight confusion sorry :(

10. hartnn

did u take average ?

11. hba

wait i am solving

12. hba

So, root(20),root(20) and root (34) what next ? @hartnn

13. hartnn

recheck....

14. hba

Lol i do not have the power to recheck

15. hartnn

root 20, root 80, root 52 thats what i got....

16. hba

Ok what next ?

17. hartnn

adding those 3 will give u perimeter...

18. hba

So we add them up but we do not divide them by 3

19. hartnn

no, don't divide perimeter = sum of sides

20. hba

Oh Thanks a ton @hartnn

21. hartnn

welcome ^_^

22. hba

@hartnn I think i do not deserve a medal lol

23. hartnn

oh....i am in half sleep...maybe thats y i gave u....zzzzz
