What is the perimeter of a triangle with corners at #(6 ,5 )#, #(9 ,1 )#, and #(3 ,8 )#?
Perimeter P
Compute the lengths of sides:
Side containing (6,5) and (9,1)
Side containing (6,5) and (3,8)
Side containing (9,1) and (3,8)
God bless....I hope the explanation is useful.

To find the perimeter of a triangle with corners at (6, 5), (9, 1), and (3, 8), you calculate the distance between each pair of consecutive corners using the distance formula, and then sum up these distances.
Let's label the vertices of the triangle as A(6, 5), B(9, 1), and C(3, 8).
The distance formula between two points ((x_1, y_1)) and ((x_2, y_2)) is given by: [ d = \sqrt{(x_2  x_1)^2 + (y_2  y_1)^2} ]
Now, calculate the distance between each pair of consecutive vertices:

Distance between A(6, 5) and B(9, 1): [ AB = \sqrt{(9  6)^2 + (1  5)^2} ]

Distance between B(9, 1) and C(3, 8): [ BC = \sqrt{(3  9)^2 + (8  1)^2} ]

Distance between C(3, 8) and A(6, 5): [ CA = \sqrt{(6  3)^2 + (5  8)^2} ]
Finally, add up these distances to find the perimeter of the triangle:
[ \text{Perimeter} = AB + BC + CA ]
Calculate each distance using the given points and then sum them up to find the perimeter of the triangle.

When evaluating a onesided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.

 A triangle has corners at #(2 ,4 )#, #(7 ,6 )#, and #(4 ,9 )#. How far is the triangle's centroid from the origin?
 Let M and N be matrices , #M = [(a, b),(c,d)] and N =[(e, f),(g, h)],# and #v# a vector #v = [(x), (y)].# Show that #M(Nv) = (MN)v#?
 A line passes through #(9 ,5 )# and #(2 ,3 )#. A second line passes through #(2 ,8 )#. What is one other point that the second line may pass through if it is parallel to the first line?
 What is the equation of the line perpendicular to #y  4 = 0# and passing through (1, 6)? Please show working.
