How many non-congruent triangles with perimeter 16 inches are there whose side lengths are all integer numbers of inches?

 

I got (2,6,7),(3,5,7),(4,5,6)*3 = 9. 

 

Am I missing something?

2+6+7=15 so that it no good

In fact all yours have a perimater of 15, but the question says the perimeter is 16.
