find the lengths of the sides of a triangle whose perimeter is 37. The measure of the first side of the triangle is 8 less than the second side, and the second side is twice the length of the third side

  • Geometry -

    third side --- x
    second --- 2x
    first---- 2x - 8

    can you solve
    x + 2x + 2x-8 = 37 ?

  • Geometry -

    x=9
