    the perimeter is a linear measurement; if you double the linear measurements, well, .... they double

    yes, that is what it means to double. To add the same amount twice. 2 doubled is 4 5 doubled is 10. it just means to add it to itself

    33 doubled is 33+33

    33 + 33 = 66.

    yep :) and to justify your answer, double all the side measures and add them up as well.
