If the perimeter of the equilateral triangle is 37 centimetes what is the approximate area of the triangle?

approx. 66 cm 3 Since an equilateral triangle has three equal side... 37 cm / 3 = 12.33 cm Area equals 1/2 * base * height one of the sides = base = 12.33cm or approx. 12 Using the right triangle method to find the height... height = 12.33/2 = 6.16 * sq. root of 3 = 6.16 * 1.732 = 10.669 or approx. 11 1/2 * 12 * 11 = approx. 66 cm 3
