Because each side length is correct to the nearest millimetre, at most they could be one millimetre less than the given numbers. That is, 5.1 cm, 6.2 cm and 9.3 cm. So the lower bound of the perimeter is
5.1+6.2+9.3=20.6 cm

The converse of the Pythagorean theorem is also a true statement: If the sum of the squares of the lengths of two sides of a triangle is equal to the square of the length of the third side, then the triangle is a right triangle. Use the distance formula and the Pythagorean theorem to determine whether the set of points could be vertices of a right triangle.
