The numbers are 17 and 12

19 & 17

The numbers are 5 and 17.

3 + 17 13+7 19+1

hree sides x 17 = 51.The sum of the numbers 1 to 9 = 45.So we need an extra '6' to make 45 up to 51.The numbers at the corners of a triangle are counted twice.So we need three numbers at the corners which total 6, because they will be counted twice.The only three numbers which total six are 1,2,3.So the sides are1**22**33**1The side which starts with 1 and ends with 2 already totals 3, so we need two numbers that total 14 to complete the sum of 17. Two unused numbers which total 14 are 9 & 5.So side 1 is 1, 9 & 5, 2The side which starts with 2 and ends with 3 already totals 5, so we need two numbers that total 12 to complete the sum of 17. Two unused numbers which total 12 are 8 & 4.So side 2 is 2, 8 & 4, 3The side which starts with 3 and ends with 1 already totals 4, so we need two numbers that total 13 to complete the sum of 17. Two unused numbers which remain are 7 & 6, which, fortunately, total 13!So side 3 is 3, 7 & 6, 1-------------------The only other way is1, 8 & 6, 22, 7 & 5, 33, 9 & 4, 1
