The sides of a triangle have measures of x, x, and y, and the perimeter of the triangle is 46. The measure y is 4 centimeters longer than the measure x." X + X + Y = 46 (can also be written as 2x + Y = 46) Y + 2X = 46 Y  X = 4 *  (Need to cancel the Y or the X, but cannot do so, so another step is needed) * (Y  X = 4) / 1 (divide each number by 1) = 1Y + 1X =  4 Y + 2X = 46 Y + 1X = 4  3X = 42 (divide both sides by 3)   3 3 X = 14 (Now solve for Y) y + (2 times 14) = 46 y + 28 = 46 1y = 4628 1y = 18 (divide both sides by 1)   1 1 Y= 18 So, 14 + 14 + 18 = 46 x + x + y = 46
