 # Equilateral Triangle side = 8

## Enter Side (a) Given an equilateral triangle with side (a) equal to 8, calculate the other relevant items in this triangle

P = 3a
P = 3 x 8
P = 24

## Calculate Semiperimeter s:

 s  = P 2

 s  = 24 2

s = 12

## Calculate Area (A):

 A  = a2√3 4

 A  = 82√3 4

 A  = 64√3 4

 A  = 110.851 4

A = 27.712812921102

## Calculate Bisector

 ha-ma-ta  = a√3 2

 ha-ma-ta  = 13.8564 2

ha-ma-ta = 6.9282032302755

 R  = a√3 3

 R  = 13.8564 3

R = 4.618802153517

 r  = a√3 6

 r  = 13.8564 6

r = 2.3094010767585

P = 24
s = 12
A = 8

P = 24
s = 12
A = 8

### How does the Equilateral Triangle Calculator work?

Given a side (a), this calculates the following items of the equilateral triangle:
