    Answer:

    5.1 units

    Step-by-step explanation:

    At first we should know that, the sum of the lengths of any two sides of a triangle is greater than the length of the remaining side.

    Given: An isosceles triangle has a base 10 units long.

    Let the length of each side of the congruent sides = x

    So, x + x > 10

    2x > 10

    x > 5

    the congruent side lengths have measures to the first decimal place,

    So, the congruent side lengths have measures to the nearest tenths.

    So, the shortest possible length of the sides = 5.1 units
