Let the shortest side be x.

one side is 13 more than the shortest = x + 13

Longest is 31 more than the shortest = x + 31

Perimeter of triangle = 140

x + x + 13 + x + 31 = 140

3x + 44 = 140

3x = 140 - 44

3x = 96

x = 96/3

x = 32

Shortest side, x = 32

Other side  = x + 13 = 32 + 13 = 45

Longest side = x + 31 = 63

Side 1 = 32 inches

Side 2 = 45 inches

Side 3 = 63 inches

I hope this helped.

Question
Find the value of the expression (2x-12)+(1/2xy-10) x=8 y=2
Solution 1

The value of the expression at x = 8 and y = 2 will be 2.

### What is the value of the expression?

The result of the computation that the mathematical model depicts is the expression's result when the necessary parameters and natural laws are given quantities.

Parenthesis, Exponent, Multiplication, Division, Addition, and Subtraction are all part of the PEMDAS formula. To answer the problem properly and accurately, this rule is applied.

The expression is given as,

⇒ (2x - 12) + (1/2xy - 10)

The value of the expression at x = 8 and y = 2 will be calculated as,

⇒ (2 × 8 - 12) + (1/2 × 8 × 2 - 10)

⇒ (16 - 12) + (8 - 10)

⇒ 4 - 2

⇒ 2

The value of the expression at x = 8 and y = 2 will be 2.

The sume of of two numbers is 66. The larger number is two more than three times the smaller number. What are the two numbers?
Solution 1
X+y=66. Let's assume y is the larger number. Y=3x+2. Plug in Y. x+3X+2=66 4X=64. Therefore, x=16. We plug in X, Y=16(3) +2=50
Question
Write 560% as a decimal and as a mixed number
Solution 1
560% as a decimal = 5.6
(move the decimal points 2 spaces to the left.)

560% as a mixed number = 5 3/5
(divide 560 by 100; 100 goes into 560 5 times so 5 will be your whole number and since you have 60 left you divide 60 by 100; 60/100 can be reduced to 3/5 if you divide the numerator and the denominator by 20)

hope this helps :)
