| **One side of the triangle is 32 cm, the second is 45% of the first, and the third is 11/16 of the first. Calculate the perimeter of the triangle.**

Let’s calculate the length of the second side of this triangle. To do this, multiply the length of the first side of the triangle – 32 centimeters by 0.45:

32 * 0.45 = 14.4 centimeters.

The length of the second side of the triangle is 14.4 centimeters.

We calculate the length of the third side of the triangle, for this we multiply the first side of the triangle – 32 centimeters by 11/16:

32 * 11/16 = 22 centimeters.

The third side of the triangle is 22 centimeters long.

Let’s calculate the perimeter:

32 + 22 + 14.4 = 68.4 centimeters.

Answer: The perimeter of the triangle is 68.4 centimeters.
