A vacant city lot is being turned into a neighborhood gardden. The neighbors want to fence a triangular section of the lot and plant fowers there. 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?
