$${\color{#00880a}{c}}^2={\color{#9a00c7}{a}}^2 \hspace{1mm} \large\textbf{+} \hspace{1mm} \normalsize{{\color{#007DDC}{b}}^2}$$The longest side of a right triangle is called a hypotenuse (`c`). It is also the side opposite the right angle.The Perimeter of a shape is the sum of all the side lengths.First, solve for the missing side, `h`, which is the hypotenuse. This means we can use Pythagoras’ Theorem.Start by finding the `2` missing sides of the triangle.Remember that opposite sides of a rectangle are equal.Then, subtract the two values highlighted below.`50````20` `=` `30` cm Now that we know all lengths of the triangle, label the values, then substitute them into Pythagoras’ Theorem.`c=h``a=30` cm`b=30` cm$${\color{#00880a}{c}}^2$$ `=` $${\color{#9a00c7}{a}}^2 + {\color{#007DDC}{b}}^2$$ Pythagoras’ Theorem $${\color{#00880a}{h}}^2$$ `=` $${\color{#9a00c7}{30}}^2 + {\color{#007DDC}{30}}^2$$ `h^2` `=` `900+900` `h^2` `=` `1800` `sqrt(h^2)` `=` `sqrt1800` Get the square root of both sides `h` `=` `42.4264…` cm `h` `=` `42.4` cm Round off to `1` decimal place Finally, add all the side lengths of the shape to find the perimeter.Perimeter `=` `20+30+50+42.4` `=` `142.4` cm `142.4` cm

$${\color{#00880a}{c}}^2={\color{#9a00c7}{a}}^2 \hspace{1mm} \large\textbf{+} \hspace{1mm} \normalsize{{\color{#007DDC}{b}}^2}$$The longest side of a right triangle is called a hypotenuse (`c`). It is also the side opposite the right angle.The Perimeter of a shape is the sum of all the side lengths.The sides with the same markers (single line) have the same length.Also, since the trapezoid has a horizontal base, this means the two right triangles at both sides of the trapezoid are equal.Find the value of the lower sides of the triangles by subtracting the length of the shorter base of the trapezoid from the longer base.`148` `=` `6` Since the triangles are equal, we can divide `6` by `2` which is equal to `3`.This means the length of the lower sides of the triangles is `3`m.Now that we know all lengths of the triangle, label the values, then substitute them into Pythagoras’ Theorem.`c=``?``a=3` m`b=5` m$${\color{#00880a}{c}}^2$$ `=` $${\color{#9a00c7}{a}}^2 + {\color{#007DDC}{b}}^2$$ Pythagoras’ Theorem $${\color{#00880a}{c}}^2$$ `=` $${\color{#9a00c7}{3}}^2 + {\color{#007DDC}{5}}^2$$ `c^2` `=` `9+25` `c^2` `=` `34` `sqrt(c^2)` `=` `sqrt34` Get the square root of both sides `c` `=` `5.83095…` m `c` `=` `5.8` m Round off to `1` decimal place Finally, add all the side lengths of the shape to find the perimeter.Perimeter `=` `5.8+5.8+8+14` `=` `33.6` m `33.6` m
