2).Perimeter of quadrilateral is 52in. Longest side is is three times as long as the shortest side. The other two sides are equally long and are 5 in. longer than the shortest side. Find length of all four sides.

  • college math -

    m + n + x = 45

    x = n + 5 so n = (x-5)
    x = 2 m so m = x/2

    x/2 + x-5 + x = 45
    2.5 x = 50
    25 x = 500
    x = 20
    n = x-5 = 15
    m = x/2 = 10

  • college math -

    L = 3 s
    a = b = s+5

    perimeter = L + s + a + b = 52
    3 s + s + s + 5 + s + 5 = 52

    6 s + 10 = 52

    6 s = 42

    s = 7 etc
