Moving to PS sub-forum ...


!
Please post PS questions in the PS subforum: gmat-problem-solving-ps-140/
Please post DS questions in the DS subforum: gmat-data-sufficiency-ds-141/


To answer this question ... all you need is distance between vertices :

(0,0) & (7,0) : 7
(0,0) & (3,3) : \(3\sqrt{2}\)
(7,0) & (3,3) : \(\sqrt{16+9}=5\)

Perimeter = sum of these three sides = \(12 + 3\sqrt{2}\)

Answer : e

The formula to calculate the distance between two points \((x_1,y_1)\) and \((x_2,y_2)\) is \(d=\sqrt{(x_1-x_2)^2+(y_1-y_2)^2}\).

Distance between (0, 0) and (7, 0) is \(d=7\);
Distance between (0, 0) and (3, 3) is \(d=\sqrt{(0-3)^2+(0-3)^2}=\sqrt{18}=3\sqrt{2}\);
Distance between (3, 3) and (7, 0) is \(d=\sqrt{(3-7)^2+(3-0)^2}=5\);

\(P=7+3\sqrt{2}+5=12+3\sqrt{2}\).

Answer: E.

For more check Coordinate Geometry chapter of Math Book: math-coordinate-geometry-87652.html

Hope it helps.

Get distance between (0,0) and (3,3): \(\sqrt{(3 - 0)^2 + (3-0)^2} = \sqrt{(18)} = 3 \sqrt{(2)}\)
Get distance between (3,3) and (7,0): \(\sqrt{(7-3)^2 + (3-0)^2} = \sqrt{16 + 9}= \sqrt{25}=5\)
Get distance between (0,0) and (7,0): 7

\(P = 7 + 5 + 3\sqrt{2} = 12 + \sqrt{2}\)

Answer: E

Hello from the GMAT Club BumpBot!

Thanks to another GMAT Club member, I have just discovered this valuable topic, yet it had no discussion for over a year. I am now bumping it up - doing my job. I think you may find it valuable (esp those replies with Kudos).

Want to see all other topics I dig out? Follow me (click follow button on profile). You will receive a summary of all topics I bump in your profile area as well as via email.

Hi Bunnuel,

Is there any formula to calculate area of triangle when all coordinates are known?

Please help. Many thanks in advance for your kind response

I really doubt that you'll need it for the GMAT but here you go:

If the vertices of a triangle are: \(A(a_x, a_y)\), \(B(b_x, b_y)\) and \(C(c_x,c_y)\) then the area of ABC is:

\(area=|\frac{a_x(b_y-c_y)+b_x(c_y-a_y)+c_x(a_y-b_y)}{2}|\).

Ohh,

A day before I saw question like that on gmat club. Anyways many thanks for your response and telling me its highly unlikely to come. :)

Relatively straight-forward problem, though I'd suggest plotting it so you can visualize the sides and what two side lengths you will need to calculate.

Base length is 7

(1) Distance between (0,0) & (3,3) --> sqrt[(3^2)+(3^2)] = 3sqrt(2)

(2) Distance between (3,3) & (7,0) --> sqrt[(3-0)^2 + (3-7)^2] = sqrt(9+16) = sqrt(25) =5

Add them all up --> 12+ 3sqrt(2)

Plot the graph and you will get two triangles one is pythagorean triples(3, 4, 5) and 3, 3, and 3sqrt(2)

by this perimeter is 12+3sqrt(2)
