The perimeter of a triangle is 72 cenimeters.the second side is twice as long as the first side.the third side is four centimeters shorter than the second side.how long is the first side?

  • algebra 1 - ,

    Let the first side length be A, etc.

    A + B + C = 72
    B = 2A
    C = B-4

    B/2 + B + (B -4) = 2.5 B -4 = 72
    2.5 B = 76
    B = 30.4
    A = 15.2 is the first side length
    C = 26.4
    --------
    Sum = 72, as required
