**Reiny**, Sunday, July 28, 2013 at 12:06amlet each of the equal sides be

let the base by y

then 2x + y = 44

y = 44-2x

So the base is 44 - 2x

"The base of an isosceles triangle is four less than the sum of the lengths of the legs" ---> 44 -2x = 2x-4

44 - 2x = 2x - 4

-4x = -48

x = 12

Each of the two legs is 12, and the base is 44-24 = 20
