how you do this:

The perimeter of an isosceles triangle is 36cm, and the area is 60cm. The length of the base is 3cm less than the length of a leg. Find the length of each side.

  • ASAP math -

    Let X = length of one of the legs.

    Perimeter = 2X + (X - 3) = 36

    3X = 39

    X = 13

    Check by inserting that value into the formula for the area.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.

    x= 13
