Formula Review:

Perimeter of Triangles, Parallelograms, and Trapezoids = Sum of all sides

Area of Triangle = x base x height

Area of Parallelogram = base x height

Area of Trapezoid = x height x (base1 + base2)

Solution:

Step 1: Area of Triangle = x base x height

= x 5 x 4 = 10

= 10 cm2

 Step 2: Perimeter of Triangle = Sum of all sides

 

= 4 + 5 + 8 = 17

= 17 cm

 

The answer is:

 

Area of Triangle = 10 cm2

 

Perimeter of Triangle = 17 cm
