Consider PR as hypotenuse of a right angled triangle with other sides as 4 and 3 then PR = 5
Consider QP as hypotenuse of a right angled triangle with other sides as 4 and 3 then QP = 5
Consider QR as hypotenuse of a right angled triangle with other sides as 1 and 7 then QR = \(5\sqrt{2}\)
PR + QP + QR = \(10 +5\sqrt{2}\)
E

as is evident from the figure, we have right angle triangles, QRS, QTP, & PUR that will provide the length of sides QR, QP & PR.

For triangle QRS
side SR = 7 (number of columns between S & R)
Side QS = 1 (number of rows between Q & S)
therefore QR = \(\sqrt{(7^2+1^2)}\)= \(5\sqrt{2}\)

Similarly for triangle QTP
QT=3, TP=4, hence QP=5

and for triangle PUR
PU=3, UR=4, hence PR =5

So the perimeter of triangle PQR = 5+5+\(5\sqrt{2}\)= 10 + \(5\sqrt{2}\)
