What is the circumference of a triangle?

triangle does not have a circumference, a circle has a circumference. A triangle only has a hypotenuse (Pythagoras sort of stuff). The circumference of a circle is the perimeter of it, so, perhaps, if your teacher ask for the circumference of a triangle he/she might mean the perimeter of the triangle.

The legs of a triangle are 5 and 12 What is the perimeter?

With sides of 5 and 12, you can make a triangle with any perimeter you want between 24 and 34. If you call them "legs" because they are the sides of a right triangle, then the hypotenuse is 13, and the perimeter is 30.

How do you find the perimeter of a triangle given the hypothesis?

It really depends on what your hypothesis is! But I expect a hypotenuse could be more useful in this context. However, knowledge of the hypothesis, hypotenuse even, is not enough to enable you to find the perimeter.

How do you find the perimeter of a triangle with only 10 and 8?

If ten is the hypotenuse of a right triangle, the Pythagorean theorem tells us that the other side has to be 6.

How do you find the area of the right angle triangle given the base hypotenuse and perimeter?

It is: perimeter minus hypotenus+base = height Area = 0.5*base*height

Can you find both sides of a triangle if the hypotenuse and perimeter is given?

Yes with a bit of give and take its sides can eventually be worked out.

What is the peremeter of the right angled triangle?

The perimeter is equal to the sum of (leg-1) plus (leg-2) plus (hypotenuse).

How do you figure out the perimeter of an triangle when you only have a measurement for the hypotenuse?

It is impossible. You need another measurement, such as angle, side length or area etc.

How do you find the hypotenuse of an equilateral triangle?

You can't as there is no hypotenuse in an equilateral triangle. The hypotenuse is the side of a triangle which is opposite a right angle (90°); all angles in an equilateral triangle are 60°.
