The perimeter of the traiangle is 24 m. Find the lengths of the 3 sides.Answer by drk(1908)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let x be the length of each equal side and then 2x - 4 is the length of the base. p = a + b + c 24 = a + b + c step 1 - combine like terms to get step 2 - add 4 to get step 3 - divide by 4 to get the three sides are {7, 7, 10}
