1.The length of one of the equal legs of an isosceles triangle is 8 cm less than 4 times the length of the base. If the perimeter is 29 cm, find the length of one of the equal legs.


A)
4 cm


B)
5 cm


C)
11 cm


D)
12 cm
answers
4x-8= 4(5)-8= 20-8= 12
2.3x - 2y = 6
answer
X=4 and Y=3

3*4=12
x = 2/3y + 2
3.solve. -3(x+1)=2(x-8)+3
ANSWER
X=2

    I call the base b
    then each leg is (4b-8)
    then the perimeter is 2(4b-8)+b
    so
    2(4b-8)+b = 29

    in the end you should get base b = 5 and the two equal legs are each 12

    let the base be x
    then each of the other sides is 4x-8

    4x+8 + 4x+8 + x = 29
    .
    .
    x=5
    2x-8=12
    then the triangle has base 5 and the other two sides are 12 each, it checks out
