I don't see a word integer(s) in this question.

A triangle ABC with three different integer side lengths had the longest side AC and shortest AB. If the perimeter of ABC is 384 units, what is the greatest possible difference between AC-AB?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Triangle sides are   AC = 191          AB = 3          BC = 190

 

So...      AC - AB = 191 - 3 = 188 smiley
