    Perimeter of the new triangle is 576 ft

    Step-by-step explanation:

    • Step 1: Given the perimeter of the right triangle = 72 ft. Find new perimeter.

    Perimeter of the triangle = sum of the sides = a + b + c = 72

    Each side is multiplied by 8, so new sides are 8a, 8b, 8c

    ⇒ New perimeter = 8a + 8b + 8c = 8(a + b + c) = 8 × 72 = 576 ft
