   (a) The perimeter of a triangle = Sum of all the three sides
                                                    = 3cm + 4cm + 5cm 
                                                    = 12 cm

 (b) The perimeter of a eqilateral triangle
      = Sum of all the sides of  the triangle
       = (9cm +9cm +9cm) 
      = 27cm

(c) Perimeter of a given isosceles triangle 
     = Sum of all sides
     = 8cm + 8cm +6cm
     = 22 cm
