Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x+(x−4)+(x−4)=19

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The perimeter means you add up all the three sides.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@misssunshinexxoxo To be honest i'm not sure. I don't know how to work it out.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So, what is `4 inches less than x` mean? (In like an equation)

AbdullahM

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2No, that means `x4` 4 inches less than x means we have to do subtraction.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So two of this sides are \(\sf x4\) and one side is x So that means since the perimeter equals to 19: \(\sf\Large (x4) + (x4) + x=19\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\(\sf\Large (x4) + (x4) + x=19\) we can make that: \(\sf\Large x4 + x  4 + x = 19\) Add like terms and then isolate x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(x+x+x)+(−4+−4)=19 there are 3 x's. 4+4=8 3x+−8=19 3x−8=19 then I added 8 to both sides. 3x=27 then I divide both sides by 3 x=9
