Put all the sides in terms of x. X represents the longest side side x side y=(1/3)x side z=x-13 The perimeter is 106 which is the sum of all the sides. x+(1/3)x+(x-13)=106 Solve for x Then it will be easy to find the other sides

well you already know the greater the width is the higher the temperature Now you just to put the widths in order. Because they all have different denominators you are going to have to find the least common denominator. 25,50,100,20,5= these are all factors of 100 So rearrange...
