what steps do i need to do in order to get the answre?

Perimeter= L + L+2 + L+4

solve for L. That is the short side. THen add two for the next side, and add two again for the last side.

x = first odd integer

x + 2 = second odd integer

x + 4 = third odd integer

Therefore:

x + x + 2 + x + 4 = 195

Solve for x. Don't forget to list all sides!

I hope this will help get you started.

-6 -6

3x=189

divide by 3

on both sides

and you get x=63
