### What is Meant by Equilateral Triangle?

In Geometry, the triangle is a two-dimensional figure with three sides. Based on the sides and angles of the triangle, it can be classified into different types, such as the scalene triangle, isosceles triangle, equilateral triangle, acute triangle, obtuse triangle and right triangle. The area of the equilateral triangle is the region occupied by the equilateral triangle. The perimeter of the equilateral triangle is the sum of its three sides. The formula to calculate the area and the perimeter of the equilateral triangle is given as follows:

If “a” is the side of the equilateral triangle, then

Area = (√3/4)a2 square units

Perimeter = 3a units

Semiperimeter = 3a/2 units

### Solved Examples on Equilateral Triangle

Example 1:

Calculate the area of the equilateral triangle whose side is 4cm

Solution:

Given that, the side length “a” is 4 cm

We know that the area of the equilateral triangle is (√3/4)a2

Now, substitute the value a = 4 in the formula

A = (√3/4)42

A = √3 (4)

A = 1.732 (4)

A = 6.928 cm2

Hence, the area of the equilateral triangle is 6.928 cm2.

Example 2:

Evaluate the perimeter of the equilateral triangle given that side length is 3 cm

Solution:

Side Length, a  = 3 cm

The formula to calculate the perimeter of the equilateral triangle is 3a units

Now, substitute a = 3 in the formula, we get

Perimeter = 3 (3)

Perimeter = 9 cm

Therefore, the perimeter of the equilateral triangle is 9 cm.
