Perimeter of ∆ DEF \(= 4 + 8 + 9 = 21\)

Perimeter of ∆ DEF \(=\) Perimeter of ∆ ABC \(= 21\)

∆ ABC is equilateral. Therefore all the sides are equal.

Therefore AB \(= \frac{21}{3} = 7\)

Answer (C)...

Triangle DEF has a perimeter of 4 + 8 + 9 = 21. Since triangle ABC is equilateral (with all sides equal) and has the same perimeter as triangle DEF, we can create the following equation to determine n where n = a side of triangle ABC:

3n = 21

n = 7

Answer: C

Perimeter of triangle DEF = 4+8+9 = 21

Now the perimeter of ABC equals the perimeter of DEF. Also , triangle ABC is equilateral triangle , means each side equal.

Thus AB =BC= AC = 21/3 = 7

Correct option : C
