Then,

Two equals sides are = 2x metres.

Perimeter = 20m.

Therefore,

⇒20=2x+2x+x

⇒20=5x

Let the equal sides be = a cm

the third side be = b cm

So we have a = 2 b

perimeter = 20 m

a + a + b = 20 m

2b + 2b + b = 20 m

5 b = 20 m

=> b = 4 meters and hence, a = 8 meters

The three sides of the triangle are : 4 m, 8 m and 8 m

the third side be = b cm

So we have a = 2 b

perimeter = 20 m

a + a + b = 20 m

2b + 2b + b = 20 m

5 b = 20 m

=> b = 4 meters and hence, a = 8 meters

The three sides of the triangle are : 4 m, 8 m and 8 m
