A triangular sail has a perimeter of 25 m. Side a is 2 m shorter than twice side b, and side c is 3 m longer than side b. Find the length of each side.

Accepted Solution

We know that perimeter of the triangle its a+b+c=25a=2b-2b=bc=b+3Now we can substitute it into the formula2b-2+b+b+3=254b+1=25 Β  Β  Β  Β  Β /-14b=24 Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  /:4b=6 - its b sidea=2*6-2a=12-2=10 - its a sidec=6+3=9 - its c side╦────────────────────────────╦ β”‚Hope this helped Β _____________________β”‚ Β  Β β”‚~Xxxtentaction _______________________β”‚ β•©__________________________________β•© Β  Β  Β  Β  Β
