1/3*1/3=1/9. Thus the number of sides is increased by 4 times i.e. 4*12=48. Length of the side is decreased by 3 times. The perimeter is calculated directly as number of sides in this stage multiplied by the length of the side in the same stage i.e.48*1/9. Now each side in the previous stage gives rise to one equilateral triangle in this stage with side 1/3 of the side in the previous stage…
