 Question 348316: The perimeter of a triangle is 24 feet. The second side is 2 feet longer than the first side. The third side is 2 feet longer than the second. What are the lengths of each side of the triangle?Answer by checkley77(12569)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!P=24 ft. S2=S1+2FT. 3S=S2+2FT. P=S1+S2+S3 24=S1+(S1+2)+(S1+2+2) 24=3S1+6 2S1=24-6 3S1=18 S1=18/3 S1=6 FT ANS. FOR SIDE 1. S2=6+2=8 FT FOR SIDE 2. S3=8+2=10 FT. FOR SIDE 3. PROOF. 24=6+8+10 24=24
