We start with the formula for the perimeter of a triangle, P, as shown below.
Now, this formula simply means that we can find its perimeter by adding up all the side lengths together. Hence, we have:
It is important to include the unit. Since, the sides lengths are given in cm, P will be in cm:
Therefore, the answer is A.
