# What is the perimeter of a triangle with each side being 3/8cm?

Mar 9, 2018

Perimeter $= \frac{9}{8} \text{ cm." = 1 1/8" cm.}$

#### Explanation:

The perimeter is the sum of the sides.

A triangle has 3 sides
and if each side is $\frac{3}{8} \text{ cm.}$
then the perimeter is $\frac{3}{8} + \frac{3}{8} + \frac{3}{8}$ or $3 \times \frac{3}{8} = \frac{9}{8} \text{ cm.}$

As a mixed fraction
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} \frac{9}{8} = 1 \frac{1}{8}$
