    Side1 + side2 + side 3 = 84

    side1 is the shortest side, and its length is x.

    side2 is the middle side, and its length is x + 7

    side3 is the longest side, and its length is 2x - 7

    x + x + 7 + 2x - 7 = 84

    4x = 84

    x = 21

    side1 = x = 21

    side2 = x + 7 = 21 + 7 = 28

    side3 = 2x - 7 = 2 (21) - 7 = 42 - 7 = 35

    The length of the sides are 21 m, 28 m, and 35 m.
