# The side of an equilateral triangle is shown by l. Express the perimeter of the equilateral triangle using l.

**Solution:**

We will be using the formula for the perimeter of the equilateral triangle

The side of an equilateral triangle is given as l units.

So, perimeter of the equilateral triangle = 3 × side-length

= 3 × l units

= 3l units

Therefore, 3l units is the perimeter of the equilateral triangle.
