Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.12x= Hypotenuse so 2x=7 makes sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes! :) and x=shortest side so what is the shortest side? :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Your question is looking for the perimeter and the perimeter is when you add all the sides of the shape. We are looking for the sides of the triangle when the hypotenuse is 7 dw:1433470973918:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(\LARGE \frac{7}{2}+7+\frac{7}{2}\sqrt{3}\) this is your perimeter But if we add \(\large\frac{7}{2}+7\) \(\Large\frac{7}{2}+\frac{7}{1}=\frac{7+14}{2}=\frac{21}{2}\) So, we will end up with \(\LARGE \frac{21}{2}+\frac{7}{2}\sqrt{3}\) as your simplified perimeter
