The sides of a triangle are in arithmetic progression and its area is 3/5th the area of an equilateral triangle with the same perimeter.
Find the ratio of the sides of the triangle.

Oh, I just realized I made an obvious mistake. I put 3/5 on the wrong side of the equation!
Back to "Putting this together:"
So x=0, or x/5±y/2=0
I doesn't make a difference whether y is positive or negative, so just call it positive. The ratio is:
The ratio is 7:5:3
