    [SOLVED] Problem Solving

    In a scalene triangle, 2 sides of equal length are together 8 cm longer than the third side. If the perimeter of the triangle is 32 cm, what is the length of each side?

    Any help on the above will be appreciated!

    scalene triangles do not have equal sides ... did you mean an isosceles triangle perhaps?

    Yes, but don't worry about that one.

    Moderator edit: Apparently the OP is no longer interested in getting help with this question.
