  5. First, find the value of m, using that equation. M is the middle side.

    The shortest side measures 71 mi less than the middle​ side,

    and the longest side measures 373 mi more than the middle side

  6. middle side is 926
    so 926-71 for the shortest side?

  7. Yes. middle side is 926
    so 926-71 for the shortest side?

    How long is the longest side?
