    One side of a triangle is three times the shortest side. The third side is 7 feet more than the shortest side. The perimeter is 62 feet. Find all three sides.

  • algebra -

    x= shortest side
    3x= side one
    x+7 = third side

    then you add all these together and set them equal to 62 and solve for x.
