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
