assuming x,y and z are the first, second and third side respectively. and using the informations you gave in the question, we can write the following system of equations: \[x=y-5 \rightarrow(1) \] \[x=z+12 \rightarrow (2)\] \[x+y+z=41 \rightarrow(3)\] do you know how to solve such a system of equations?
