**Reiny**, Monday, October 7, 2013 at 8:57amshortest piece --- x

second piece ---- 2x

longest piece ---- 4x+2

x + 2x + 4x+2 = 37

7x = 35

x = 35/7 ,

x = 5 , which is not your answer

check:

shortest = 5

second = 10 , twice as long

longest = 2 more than 4 times the shortest = 2+20 = 22

and 5+10+22 = 37
