How do I write a polynomial expression to represent the third side of the triangle? I know one side is 2x-3y and the other is x+2y and P=5x+2y? I am lost.

  • Math -

    I will assume that P represents the perimeter.

    Let the third side be S

    S + 2x-3y + x+2y = 5x + 2y
    S = 5x+2y - 2x + 3y - x - 2y
    = 2x + 3y


    check:
    What is the sum of (x+2y) + (2x-3y) + (2x+3y) ??
