A flower bed is in the shape of a triangle with one side twice the length of the shortest side, and the third side is 13 feet more than the length of the shortest side. Find the dimensions if the perimeter is 125 feet
perimeter is sum of all sides
kylemp1, does that drawing follow the description?
therefore 2x + x + x + 13 = 125 4x = 125-13 4x = 112 x = 28
I'm pretty sure, it just gives me the question, but no drawing
there fore dimension is x = 28 2x = 56 x+13 = 41
so the shortest side is 28, the second side is 41, and the third is side is 51?
Look at the drawing and solve the equation\[(x)+(2x)+(x+13)=125.\]
