Cutting equilateral triangle out of square and translating it to the left of the square creates the shaded figure . The perimeter of square was 48 inches. What is the perimeter, in inches, of ?
The side of the square = the side of the equilateral triangle = 48/4 = 12 in
And I assume you want to know the perimeter of the shaded figure ???
There are 6 sides to the shaded figure each = 12 in
So...the perimeter = 6 * 12 = 72 in
