Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[x+(x+2)+(x+4)=36\] This is given that x is the shortest side. You would then combine like terms and end up with\[3x+6=36\]. Subtract the six and then divide by 3 to get the shortest side which is 10. The middle length you would have to add two which would give you 12.
