Question

# The perimeter of an isosceles triangle is $$32\ cm$$ while its equal sides together measure $$18\ cm$$. Find the third side and each of the equal sides.

Solution

## Let the third side be $$x$$.According to the question,$$Perimeter=Sum\ of\ all\ three\ sides=x+2a$$Therefore,$$x+2a=32$$$$x+18=32$$$$x=14\ cm$$So,The third side $$=14\ cm$$And each equal side $$=\dfrac{18}{2}=9\ cm$$Hence, this is the answer.Mathematics
