Please do not add second questions to your own question thread. It is confusing for the teachers.

The possible side lengths in your first question are between 8-5 (=3) and 8+5(=13) . Allowed integer values would be 4,5,6,7,8,9,10, 11 and 12.

That makes 9 values.

In your second question, the third angle of the triangle must be 18 degrees. The shortest side is opposite the smallest angle (A).
