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 - ,

    first side --- x
    second side --- x-2
    third side -- (3/5)x

    x + x-2 + (3/5)x = 24
    times 5

    5x + 5x-10 + 3x = 120
    13x = 130
    x = 10

    first side = 10
    2nd side = 8
    3rd side = 6
