How do You Find the Perimeter of a Right Triangle?
Question: How do you find the perimeter of a right triangle?
Answer: Perimeter of a right triangle is a + b + ⎷a2 + b2
Let's understand the usage of pythagoras theorem to find the dimensions of the right angled traingle
Let 'a' be the length of the base and 'b' be the length of the height or perpendicular of a right triangle.
the hypotenuse is given by ⎷a2 + b2
We know that,
Perimeter = Sum of all the three sides
= Base + Height + Hypotenuse
So, Perimeter of Right Triangle = a + b + ⎷a2 + b2
