    Answer:

    Perimeter of one of the triangle= 17.071 inch

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The triangle has:

    Perpendicular= 5 inch\\Base = 5 inch \\Diagonal(Hypotenuse)=?

    Using the Pythagorean Theorem;

              ( Hypotenuse)^2=(Perpendicular)^2+(Base)^2\\H^2= 5^2+5^2\\H^2=25+25\\H^2=50\\

            H=\sqrt{50}\\or\\H=7.071 inches

    The Perimeter of one of the triangle is =

                               Perpendicular+Base+Hypotenuse\\5+5+7.071\\17.071inch

    This is equal for the other triangle.
