Answer

The length of the other two sides is less than or equal to 8 cm.

Work Step by Step

The perimeter is less than or equal to 24cm. p≤24 ⟶ substitute the given lengths and let s be the unknown side 2s+8≤24 ⟶ subtract 8 from both sides 2s+8−8≤24−8 ⟶ simplify 2s≤16 ⟶ divide both sides by 2 2s÷2≤16÷2 ⟶ simplify s≤8
