The perimeter of a triangle is 20 inches. The longest side is 4 inches longer than the shortest side, and the shortest side is three -fourths the length of the middle side. Find the length of each side of the triangle

  • Algebra 1 -

    Let x = shortest side, then x + 4 = longest and middle = 4/3x

    x = 3/4m ---> 4/3x = m

    x + x + 4 + 4/3x = 20

    Solve for x and then the other sides.
