If a triangle has two legs with lengths of 2 each, is the maximum permiter of that triangle 8, or 7.999 (repeating)? In other words, is the maximum angle of a triangle 180 degrees, or 17.999 (repeating) degrees?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Also, if a rectangle has two opposite sides with lengths of 2, is the minimum permiter of that rectangle 4, or 4.000000....1 (approching 4)?

Thank you!
