You cannot. For a given area, an equilateral triangle will have the smallest perimeter but that perimeter can be increased - without limit - without increasing the area.

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

That depends on what type of triangle is if the side given is equal to the perimeter divided by 3 then it is an equilateral triangle.

In general you cannot find the perimeter of any shape if only the area is given.

If you know the lengths of 2 sides and the included angle then use: Area of a triangle = 1/2*a*b*sinC

If you know the lengths of 2 sides and the included angle then use: Area of a triangle = 1/2*a*b*sinC

If you have the length of each of the three sides of a triangle, you can find the perimeter of (the distance around) the triangle by adding the length of the sides. Their sum will be the perimeter of this geometric shape.

Area of a triangle in square units = 0.5*base*height

to find the area of a triangle you divide the base of the triangle by two and multiply your answer by the height .so your formula would be 1/2b times h to find the perimeter of a triangle u simply just add the sides.

If you are given the width and the perimeter, then figure out what the length is then calculate the area... hope this helps :)
