**Reiny**, Friday, October 19, 2012 at 12:31pmshortest side --- x

longest side ---- 3x

other side --- x+18

x + 3x + x+18 = 58

5x = 40

x = 8

shortest side = 8

longest side = 24

other side = 26

Slightly flawed wording of the question.

Notice that the "longest side" is shorter than the "other side"
