The perimeter of a rectangle is 54cm. One side is x cm long, and the other is 6cm longer. a) form an equation involving x b) Solve the equation, and write down the length of each of the sides.

You've got the label right. Now try and solve it.
I know but i don't know. lol
i don't know how to solve it I mean.
Okay, so we know that the perimeter is 54 cm total. Looking at your drawing, add up all sides for perimeter and set it equal to 54cm. Now solve for the x"
do it for me. LMFAO. teach me.
Rafael just told you exactly how to do it. Add up all the sides (x+x+6, or 2x+6) And set them equal to the total (54cm) So, your equation should look like 2x+6=54. Now solve.
Oh now I get it. Thank you :)
