One side of the triangle is 2cm longer than the second side. The third is 3/5 as long as the first side. If the perimeter of the triangle is 24cm, Find the lengths of the three sides.

Math 
Reiny,
first side  x
second side  x2
third side  (3/5)x
x + x2 + (3/5)x = 24
times 5
5x + 5x10 + 3x = 120
13x = 130
x = 10
first side = 10
2nd side = 8
3rd side = 6
