If the length of the shortest side is 1/2 the length of the longest side, and the length of the third side is 1 less the length of the longest side, what is the length of each side? If x is the shortest side and y is the longest side, one equation is...?

lol. set up an equation. shortest side - x longest side - 2x middle side - (2x-1) x+2x+2x-1 = 39 5x-1 = 39 5x=40 x=8 So the shortest side is 8, the longest side is 16, and the middle side is 15. Hope this helps (:
