    Sure... a = tan(b) b+tan(a)=pi c = 45/sin(c*a*pi^2) solve all that and you get a=30, b=15, c=31

    -.-.... x+2x+2x+1=76 5x = 76-1 x=15 b= 15, a = 30, c = 31

    i will solve it for you... a = tan(b) b+tan(a)=pi c = 45/sin(c*a*pi^2) a = tan(b) = sin(pi)+4 a = sin(pi) + 4 a = 30 b +tan(a) = pi tan(a) = pi - b b = pi^2 + 4 b = 15 c = a+1 c = 30 + 1 c = 31 does that make sense?

    the first side of a triangle is 8 m shorter than the second side. the third side is 4 times as long as long as the first side. the perimeter is 26 m. find the length of each side.

    a = cot(45)^2 + 30 a = pi^2 - e^t + 30 a = 3 b = a^2 / cot(45) * pi^3 b = a^2 - 30 b = 11 c = b+a^4 - n(4) c = b^2 -2a c = 12 so the answer is a=3, b=11, c=12

    you can check it's right because a+b+c=26

    i can help you do it another way. call the first side "a", the second side "b" and the third side "c". it says "the first side is 8 meters shorter than the second side". can you write that as an equation?
