# If the area of an equilateral triangle is 16√3 cm² , then the perimeter of the triangle is

a. 48 cm

b. 24 cm

c. 12 cm

d. 36 cm

**Solution:**

Given, the __area of an equilateral triangle__ is 16√3 cm²

We have to find the perimeter of the triangle

Area of an equilateral triangle = √3/4 (side)²

16√3 = √3/4 (side)²

16 = 1/4 (side)²

(side)² = 16(4)

(side)² = 64

Taking square root,

Side = 8 cm

The length of each side of an equilateral triangle is 8 cm.

Perimeter of triangle = side + side + side

We know that in an equilateral triangle all the sides are equal

Perimeter = 8 + 8 + 8

= 16 + 8

= 24 cm

Therefore, the perimeter of the triangle is 24 cm.
