I started with a rectangular piece of paper and made a cut across it, dividing it into a triangle and a pentagon. Then I discarded the triangle and measured the lengths of the sides of the pentagon, all of which were whole numbers of centimetres.

I remember that the lengths of the shortest two sides were 17cm and 19cm, and that the length of the longest side was 33cm.

What were the lengths of the other two sides?
