Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2u mean difference of all three corresponding sides are 1m or only difference of one corresponding sides is 1m

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2(a+b+c)/(a'+b'+c')=11/13 13a+13b+13c=11a'+11b'+11c' (13a11a') + (13b11b') + (13c11c')=0 a (1311a'/a) +b (1311b'/b) +c(1311c'/c)=0 Now, a'/a =b'/b =c'/c = (1+a)/a So, (a+b+c) {1311(1+a)/a}

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Similarly, a'(13a/a' 11) + b'(13b/b' 11) +c' (13c/c' 11)=0 (a'+b'+c') { 13a/(a+1) 11}=0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So, (a+b+c) {1311(1+a)/a}/(a'+b'+c') { 13a/(a+1) 11}=0 {13 11(1+a)/a}=0 13a1111a=0 2a=11 a=5.5
