Course 3 8-2 Perimeter and Area of Triangles and Trapezoids Perimeter and Area of Triangles and Trapezoids Learn to find the perimeter and area of triangles and trapezoids.

8-2 Perimeter and Area of Triangles and Trapezoids
Course 3 8-2 Perimeter and Area of Triangles and Trapezoids The figures show a fractal called the Koch snowflake. It is constructed by first drawing an equilateral triangle. Then triangles with sides one-third the length of the original sides are added to the middle of each side. The second step is then repeated over and over again.

8-2 Perimeter and Area of Triangles and Trapezoids
Course 3 8-2 Perimeter and Area of Triangles and Trapezoids The area and perimeter of each figure is larger than that of the one before it. However, the area of any figure is never greater than the area of the box, while the perimeters increase without bound. To find the area and perimeter of each figure, you must be able to find the area of a triangle.

Course 3 8-2 Perimeter and Area of Triangles and Trapezoids Check It Out: Example 2 Find the missing measurement for the trapezoid with perimeter 58 in. 14 in. 7 in. d 28 in. P = d 58 = d Substitute 58 for P. -49 = -49 Subtract 49 from both sides. 9 = d d = 9 in.

Course 3 8-2 Perimeter and Area of Triangles and Trapezoids Additional Example 3: Multi-Step Application A homeowner wants to plant a border of shrubs around her yard that is in the shape of a right triangle. She knows that the length of the shortest side of the yard is 12 feet and the length of the longest side is 20 feet. How long will the border be? Find the length of the third side of the triangle using the Pythagorean Theorem. a2 + b2 = c2 122 + b2 = 202 Substitute 12 for a and 20 for c. 144 + b2 = 400 b2 = 256 b = 16 √256 = 16.

Course 3 8-2 Perimeter and Area of Triangles and Trapezoids Check It Out: Example 3 A gardener wants to plant a border of flowers around the building that is in the shape of a right triangle. He knows that the length of the shortest sides of the building are 38 feet and 32 feet. How long will the border be? Find the length of the third side of the triangle using the Pythagorean Theorem. a2 + b2 = c2 = c2 Substitute 38 for a and 32 for b. = c2 2468 = c2 c ≈ 49.68 √2468 =
