The sides of a triangle are three consecutive odd integers. The perimeter of the triangle is 39 inches. What is the length of each of the three sides?

  • Math -

    x+(x+2)+(x+4)=39
    because the first side is x, the next side has to be 2 more than x, and the third 4 more than x
    3x+6=39
    take it from here
