    Answer:

    3√3 units

    Step-by-step explanation:

    We are asked to find the altitude of the equilateral triangle whose perimeter is 18 . Firstly let us find the side of the∆.

    \rm \implies a + a + a = 18 \\\\\rm\implies 3a = 18  \\\\\rm\implies a = 6

    Now we know that in a equilateral triangle , the altitude of the triangle with side length a is ,

    \rm\implies Altitude =\dfrac{\sqrt3}{2} a

    Plug in the value of a that is 6 , we will get ,

    \rm\implies Altitude =\dfrac{\sqrt 3}{2} a  \\\\\rm\implies Altitude =\dfrac{ \sqrt3}{2}\times 6  \\\\\rm\implies Altitude = \sqrt3 \times 3  \\\\\rm\implies\boxed{ \bf Altitude = 3\sqrt3 \ units }
