Answer:Length of all 3 sides: 7, 7, and 9

Length of the two sides that have the same length: 7

Step-by-step explanation:Let the two sides with equal lengths have a length of . We can write the third side as .

The perimeter of a polygon is equal to the sum of all its sides. Since the perimeter of the triangle is 23 meters, we have the following equation:

Combine like terms:

Add 5 to both sides:

Divide both sides by 4:

Therefore, the three sides of the triangle are 7, 7, and 9 and the length of the two sides that have the same length is 7.
