Determine 81708

The perimeter of the triangle is 110 cm. Side a is 6 cm longer than side b and 8 cm shorter than side c. Determine the lengths of the sides of the triangle.

Correct answer:

a =  38 cm
b =  32 cm
c =  40 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

o=110 cm a = 6+b b = c8  a+b+c = o a + (a6) + (b+8) = o  a+(a6)+((a6)+8)=o a+(a6)+((a6)+8)=110  3a=114  a=3114=38  a=38=38 cm
b=a6=386=32 cm
c=b+8=32+8=40=40 cm   Verifying Solution:  o2=a+b+c=38+32+40=110 cm
