Isosceles Triangle ABC is inscribed in a circle with radius 12cm. Aide AB is a diameter. Determine the perimeter of the triangle, correct to one decimal place.

  • math - ,

    Point C must be midway between A and B on the circle since the triangle is isosceles. ABC therefore has angles of 45, 90 and 45 degrees. AB has length 12 cm. AC and BC have lengths
    6/sin45 = 6*2/sqrt2 = 6 sqrt2
    The total perimeter is 12 + 12sqrt2 =
    12(1 + sqrt2)= 29.0 cm

    Drawing the figure yourself should help explain where I got the above numbers.
