# Thread: Permimeter of Square Inside a Right Triangle

1. ## Permimeter of Square Inside a Right Triangle

ABC is a right triangle.
Point E is equidistant from AB.
What is the perimeter of the square inside ABC??

This another scalene problem i am having trouble with.
everything ive tried is fruitless. ive tried separating the triangle but since it isn't isosceles i cant seem to get any correct measurements.
Any suggestions or guidance?

2. have you considered equal ratios between similar triangles?
