#"area" = (4sqrt(3))/3#

#"perimeter" = 4sqrt(3)#

#### Explanation:

If you bisect an equilateral triangle with sides of length

In our case,

The area of the triangle is:

#1/2 xx base xx height = 1/2 xx 2x xx 2 = 2x = (4sqrt(3))/3#

The perimeter of the triangle is:

#3 xx 2x = 6x = (12 sqrt(3))/3 = 4sqrt(3)#
