 10 Starting with the outside triangle, each interior triangle is formed by connecting the 3 midlines (midsegment) of the previous triangle. If the perimeter of the largest triangle is 32, use sigma notation to represent the sum of the perimeters of the largest triangle and the 3 interior triangles formed by the midlines. A midline (or midsegment) of a triangle is a segment connecting the midpoints of the sides of a triangle.
