The longest side

Answer :

Let us assume the length of the shortest side of the triangle be x cm

According to the question, length of the longest side = 3x cm


And, length of third side = (3x – 2) cm


As, the least perimeter of the triangle = 61 cm


Thus,


= 7x – 2 ≥ 61


= 7x ≥ 63



= x ≥ 9


Hence, the minimum length o the shortest side will be 9 cm
