**Reiny**, Thursday, March 31, 2011 at 5:46pmYour opening sentence is not clear.

Are you saying that 4 of the sides are equal and one is 3 feet longer?

If that is the case, let each of the equal sides be x

then the longer side is x+3, and

x + x + x + x + x+3 = 128

5x+3=128

5x=125

x=15

longer side is 18, the others are 15
