if we take PL as x,QM as y and RN as z

then we can see that x+y=12 x+z=10 y+z=8

on solving we get x=5 y=7 z=3

+1. The key to deriving the equations stems from knowing/proving the lengths of the tangents from the same point are equal.

You can generalize with side lengths a, b, c as

x + y = a

y + z = b

z + x = c

Adding, x + y + z = (a + b + c)/2 = s

So required lengths are \( \boxed {(s - a), (s - b), (s - c)} \)
