Reiny, according to this problem(one side of a triangle is x inches longer than another side. The ray bisecting the angle formed by these sides divides the opposite side into 3inch and 5inch segments. Find the perimeter of the triangle in terms of x), you said that a+x+a+8= 1.5x+x+8=2.5x+8 I think it is 1.5x+x+1.5x+8=4x+8 is it correct?
