HELP! Need this in less than 2 hours! "The perimeter of an equilateral triangle is 15 inches more than the perimeter of a square, and the side of the triangle is 7 inches longer than the side of the square. Find the side of the triangle. (Hint: an equilateral triangle has three sides the same lenght)" I'm terrible with word problems. How can I solve this!? My homework is due in an hour and a half!

I also need to know how to turn the word problem into an equation if possible :o
those ARE your equations.
sorry, my computer was lagging while I was typing that and I didn't see that :P
that's okay, now just solve the system of equations
