In the XY-plane, the vertices of a triangle have coordinates (0, 0), (5, 5) and (10, 0). What is the perimeter of the triangle?


(A) 12

(B) 13

(C) 5 + 10√2

(D) 10 + 5√2

(E) 10 + 10√2


Perimeter of the triangle = Sum of the lengths of three sides

\(Side_1\) = Distance between (0, 0), (5, 5) \(= √(5-0)^2+(5-0)^2 = √50 = 5√2\)

\(Side_2\) = Distance between (0, 0), (10, 0) \(= √(0-0)^2+(10-0)^2 = √100 = 10\)

\(Side_3\) = Distance between (10, 0), (5, 5) \(= √(5-0)^2+(5-10)^2 = √50 = 5√2\)

i.e. Perimeter \(= 5√2 + 5√2 + 10 = 10+10√2\)

Answer: Option E

Let A(0,0),B(5,5), and C(10,0) be the vertices of the triangle ABC.

Perimeter of triangle=AB+BC+CA

AB=5√2
BC=5√2
CA=10
(Measure of sides are calculated using distance formula)

So, perimeter=10+10√2

Ans. (E)
