units

units

units

units

units

Explanation:

Because an equilateral triangle has three sides that are the same length, divide the given perimeter by 3 to find the length of each side.

### Example Question #1 : Equilateral Triangles

The perimeter of a equilateral triangle is . In meters, what is the length of a side of this triangle?

Explanation:

Since all three sides are equal in an equilateral triangle, we can just divide the perimeter by 3 to find a side length.

### Example Question #2 : Equilateral Triangles

The perimeter of an equilateral triangle is . What is the length of a side of this triangle?

Explanation:

Because all the sides in an equilateral triangle are equal, we can just divide the perimeter by 3 to find the length of a side.

### Example Question #3 : Equilateral Triangles

The perimeter of an equilateral triangle is . What is the length of one side of the triangle?

Explanation:

Since an equilateral triangle has sides that are all the same, divide the perimeter by  to get the length of each side.

### Example Question #721 : Ssat Upper Level Quantitative (Math)

The perimeter of an equilateral triangle is 39 meters. In meters, how long is one side of the triangle?

Explanation:

An equilateral triangle has sides that are the same length. Then, to find the length of one side, you only need to divide the perimeter by 3.

### Example Question #4 : How To Find The Length Of The Side Of An Equilateral Triangle

The perimeter of an equilateral triangle is . What is the length of one side of this triangle?

Explanation:

Since an equilateral triangle has three equal sides, divide the perimeter by  to find the length of each side.

### Example Question #5 : How To Find The Length Of The Side Of An Equilateral Triangle

The perimeter of an equilateral triangle is . What is the length of one side of this triangle?

Explanation:

Since an equilateral triangle has three equal sides, divide the perimeter by  to find the length of one side.
