The legs of an isosceles triangle have lengths 2x+4 and x+8 . The base has length 5x-2 . What is the length of the base?

  • geometry -

    Since the legs of an isosceles triangles are equal, we can equate the lengths and solve for x.
    2x+4 = x+8
    2x-x = 8-4
    x = 4
    Substitute x in the expression of the third side and evaluate the length.
