** How Can I Use This? ** The perimeter of an object can be found by adding Fred ordersd the outside edges of a shape. What is the perimeter of a triangle whose sides are represented algebraically? 3x + 1 2x + 6 x+5 (2x + 6) + (x + 5) + (3x + 1) = 6x + 12

Do Now
A swimmer jumps off a 10-meter diving board into a pool. He swims down 15 meters before returning to the surface. What is the total distance traveled by the swimmer? What is the question asking? Draw a picture of what the diver does.

How will that help me answer the question?
