(A) 13 (B) 34 (C) root 43 (d) 7+root3 (E) 12 +3root2 The formula to calculate the distance between two points \((x_1,y_1)\) and \((x_2,y_2)\) is \(d=\sqrt{(x_1x_2)^2+(y_1y_2)^2}\). Distance between (0, 0) and (7, 0) is \(d=7\); Distance between (0, 0) and (3, 3) is \(d=\sqrt{(03)^2+(03)^2}=\sqrt{18}=3\sqrt{2}\); Distance between (3, 3) and (7, 0) is \(d=\sqrt{(37)^2+(30)^2}=5\); \(P=7+3\sqrt{2}+5=12+3\sqrt{2}\). Answer: E. For more check Coordinate Geometry chapter of Math Book: mathcoordinategeometry87652.htmlHope it helps.

Moving to PS subforum ... 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

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

Regards Megha 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: \(area=\frac{a_x(b_yc_y)+b_x(c_ya_y)+c_x(a_yb_y)}{2}\). 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. Regards Megha

Relatively straightforward 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[(30)^2 + (37)^2] = sqrt(9+16) = sqrt(25) =5
Add them all up > 12+ 3sqrt(2)
E

How to draw graph on this? 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)
