# The perimeter of the triangle is 36 cm and the perimeter of the rectangle is 3 times less by how many centimeters

**The perimeter of the triangle is 36 cm and the perimeter of the rectangle is 3 times less by how many centimeters the perimeter of the triangle is larger than the perimeter of the rectangle.**

Let’s find what the perimeter of this rectangle is equal to.

According to the condition of the problem, the perimeter of this rectangle is 3 times less than the perimeter of the triangle, and the perimeter of the triangle is 36 cm.Consequently, the perimeter of this rectangle is:

36/3 = 12 cm.

Find how many centimeters the perimeter of the triangle is larger than the perimeter of the rectangle. To do this, subtract the value of the perimeter of the rectangle from the value of the perimeter of the triangle:

36 – 12 = 24 cm.

Answer: the perimeter of the triangle is 24 cm larger than the perimeter of the rectangle.
