# What is the perimeter of an equilateral trinagle with one side measuring 4x-8?

May 1, 2018

$P = 12 x - 24$

#### Explanation:

Since the triangle is equilateral, every side is congruent to one another. Thus the perimeter is 3(S), with S being the length of a side.

Plugging in 4x-8 for S:

$3 \left(4 x - 8\right) = 12 x - 24$

$P = 12 x - 24$
