A triangle has a perimeter of 81 inches. The side lengths can be found by x, 3x-1, and 4x+2
what is the value of x?

  • Algebra 1 - ,

    81 = x + 3x - 1 + 4x + 2

    81 = 8x + 1

    80 = 8x

    10 = x

  • Algebra 1 - ,

    x + 3x-1 + 4x +2 = 81
    8x+ 1 = 81
    8x+1-1 = 81-1
    8x = 80
    8x/8 = 80/8

    x = 10
