7-32.

Find the perimeter and area of each triangle below. Homework Help ✎

The area of a triangle is equal to (0.5)(base)(height).

The perimeter of a triangle is the sum of the lengths of all the sides.

The base of this triangle is 14 cm and the height is

11.3 cm.

Area = (0.5)(14 cm)(11.3 cm)

= 79.1 sq cm^{2}

Can you find the perimeter?

If someone placed a string around the entire edge of

this triangle, how long would the string have to be?

Perimeter = 25 in + 15 in + 20 in

= 60 inches

Can you find the area?
