Example Question #1 : Acute / Obtuse Isosceles Triangles
One side of an acute isosceles triangle is 15 feet. Another side is 5 feet. What is the perimeter of the triangle in feet?
Because this is an acute isosceles triangle, the third side must be the same as the longer of the sides that you were given. To find the perimeter, multiply the longer side by 2 and add the shorter side.
