Subject: Perimeter

Yes, I'm in college and taking Math 50 and I'm having a hard time figuring out the perimeter to a triangle. I've figured out the area, I just need to know about the perimeter. Here are the fractions to get the area: 6 7/9 35/45 2 4/5= 36/45= 9 101/45= 45 divided by 101= 11 11/45 1 2/3 30/45 Now, my question is how do I get the preimeter out of that. I'd really appreciate it if someone could get back to me on that, because I have an exam tomorrow in math. Thank you so much! cms6000@yahoo.com
