Being a designer herself, she visualizes a triangular area with different lengths for each side. For this Jenny decides to keep a side of the triangular area 3 feet shorter and the other 2 feet longer than the third side. She also wants to restrict the perimeter of the triangular area to 32 feet, so that it does not cover a huge area of the garden. Determine the maximum length of each side of the triangular area that Jenny has visualizedAnswer by solver91311(16872)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Let x be the measure of the third side, then the first side must be x - 3 and the second side must be x + 2. The perimeter is the sum of the lengths of the sides, so the maximum length of the third side will be found by solving: for x. Then subtract 3 for the first side and add 2 for the second side. John
