# The area of a circle inscribed in an equilateral triangle is 154 sq. cm. Find the perimeter of the triangle.

Ans.

it is given that area of circle = πr2

πr2 = 154

⇒ (22/7) × r2 = 154

⇒ r2 = 154 × (7/22) = 49
∴ r = 7 cm

‘r’ can not be –ve , So r=7cm.

OD=7cm

⇒AO=14cm

⇒AO=OC=OB=14cm

In right triangle ODB, By using the formula

⇒BD=12.12

⇒BC=2BD=2×12.12=24.24cm

So, Perimeter of the equilateral triangle

⇒3×length of one side

⇒3×24.24

⇒72.74cm
