A triangle has side lengths of (x+4), (4x-8), and (2x+8) units. If the perimeter of the triangle is at least 88units, what is the minimum length of each side of the triangle?

  • Pre-algebra HELP ME PLEASE -

    oh that's easy you just equal everything to 88 units...

    1. add everything together... so 7x+4
    2. equal to 88
    3. Solve!
    7x+4=88

    thenn... you have x to figure out each side
