To start you off -- divide 195 by 3.

you get 65 is that the answer. but the triangle has three sides two would be equal and the bottom one would be longer right?

It says that the sides are "consecutive odd integers." That means that each side is a different length.

What 3 consecutive odd integers include 65?
