**Reiny**, Tuesday, October 23, 2007 at 5:46pmLet each of the two equal sides be x m

"he length of the third side is three meters less that the sum of the lengthsof the other two sides"

translate that into math, does it not become 2x - 3 ??

Perimeter means the sum of all 3 sides, so

x + x + 2x-3 = 29

Solve and let me know what you got,

see if your answer satisfies the conditions stated in your problem
