    For the first question, you will need to measure each side of the triangle in milimeters (mm) and add them up. If you have a ruler that only has cm metric on it, then measure each of the three sides with the cm metric and then convert these measurements to mm. Then you will finally add up all these three sides in mm.

    I will use a cm metric ruler to measure each side of the triangle.

    The shorter slanted side is 2.6 cm.
    The longer slanted side is 3.6cm
    The base side is 5.1cm

    I will then convert each of these measurement to ...
