One side of a triangle is x inches longer than another side. The ray bisecting the angle formed by these sides divides the opposite side into 3-inch and 5-inch segments. Find the perimeter of the triangle in terms of x. ( triangle angle bisector theorem)
Let y be the small length.
y/3=x+y/5
y=1.5x
Perimeter: y+x+y+8
1.5x+x+1.5x+8=4x+8
Answer is x+ 2, correct?????????!
