Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To find the perimeter would I just multiply 2.8x2 and 1.5x2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What if the problem is only giving me the base (2.8) and height (1.5) of the prism though?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That's enough. Remember, it is an equilateral triangle, meaning the measure of the sides of the triangle are all the same.
