@goformit100 do you know how to write two expressions to find the perimeters of the rectangle and triange?
yes i know|dw:1363569955947:dw|
@goformit100 sorry for the bother,but what about to find the width of the rectangle if the perimeter of each figure is equal.how would i find that out?
in place of l you can put its vale from the figure I drew, and same for b and the sides. Finally, equate Both the equations for the required Answer
