The perimeter of a triangle is 24 cm. One side is 2 cm longer than the shortest side. The longest side is 2 cm less than twice the length of the shortest side. Find the length of each side of the triangle.- write equation and solve.

Let x = shortest side 24 = x + (x + 2) + (2x - 2) 24 = 4x 24/4 = x 6 = x

Sum of all three sides is perimeter Let length of shortest side be x Other sides becomes (x+2) and (2x-2) X+(x+2)+(2x-2)=24 4x=24 X=6
