The longest side of the trianglular section is 7 feet shorter than twice the shortest side. The thrird side is 6 feet longer than the shortest side. The permeter is 59 feet. How long is each side?

it said twice the shorter k
myininaya
  • myininaya
let's call the shortest side x so the longest side=2x-7
myininaya
  • myininaya
third side=6+x
myininaya
  • myininaya
do you understand so far?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
myininaya
  • myininaya
ok the perimeter is 59 feet so add all the sides=59 x+(2x-7)+(6+x)=59 solve this for x
myininaya
  • myininaya
let me know what you get
anonymous
  • anonymous
4x+7=59?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i mean 4x+13=59
myininaya
  • myininaya
how did you get 13?
anonymous
  • anonymous
x+2x+7+6+x=59 4x+13=59
myininaya
  • myininaya
why is 7 positive?
anonymous
  • anonymous
4x-1=59
myininaya
  • myininaya
ok gj so far
myininaya
  • myininaya
so how do you solve for x?
anonymous
  • anonymous
x=15
myininaya
  • myininaya
:) now it says to find all side so what is the longest side= if x=15
anonymous
  • anonymous
2x-7?
myininaya
  • myininaya
yes what is that if x=15
anonymous
  • anonymous
23
myininaya
  • myininaya
ok now one more side and we are done the third side= what if x=15
anonymous
  • anonymous
21
myininaya
  • myininaya
ok and what x represent again?
anonymous
  • anonymous
\[(x) +(2x-7) +(x+6) = 59 \] 15, 23, 21
anonymous
  • anonymous
x represents the shortest side
