What is it that you needed help understanding?

Question i added already, u can see it, up there

In other words explain to me your reasoning

Thought i have to multiply, 6*4

Does that help?

No i cant really get it

Basically what the question is asking is for you to find the perimeter of the figure that is shown.

12?

Do you know how to go about find the perimeter of an object?

Actually i forgot

:(

It is tough to me, i think we need to break that shape

|dw:1352333862726:dw|

16?

yes for this case, the box that i provided it would be 16

But it is not in the option

So how can it be?

No i know I provided an example that I made up just now

My example was to help you understand trying to find the perimeter of something

13 :)

Thank u sooooooo much!!!!!!!! your amazing!!!!!!!! wow!

thanks alot :)

No problem but that isnt the answer

20 is the answer

no

How ?

Don't forget to count the sides that have no length to them

thats make me problem, those are unknown, so how will i ?

do it ?

|dw:1352334189436:dw|

You need to find the lengths of x and then you need to find the length of y

But how will. i do it?

so then...

|dw:1352334433800:dw|

This is was the object would look like if we "added" the missing piece to it

4 more or what?

|dw:1352334499472:dw|

Let me explain my picture here so i don't confuse

|dw:1352334791201:dw|

8

and 5

So you think that x is 8 and y is 5?

yes u told to add, thats y

I meant to say one plus what number equals 4 to find x

oops
sorry i meant y

so one plus "a number" equals 4 to find y

and 2 plus "a number" equals 6 to find x

5 and 8, isnt it?

hold on, i will be back in a min

alright

pls dont go anywhere

thank you so so much! :)

Well so what you are saying when you say that x = 5 and y= 8 is that
2 + 5 = 6
and
1 + 8 = 4

8 + 1 would be the 4?

it suppose to be 9?

let me restate what i was trying to ask

oh ok

1 + y = 4
2 + x = 6

and I'm asking you to solve for y in the first equation

and then solve for x in the second equation

y is 5 and x is 8, right?

ok

|dw:1352336186137:dw|

second is 4

Yes you are right for the second one

x = 4

same way i have to subtract

got this

so then now we know what y is and x is then we put them in for the lengths of the object

and add the lengths of all the sides

6 + 4 + 2 + 7 + 1 = 20

Correct!

Wow, thats a long process, thank you so much @juanjohnguy !!! your totally amazing

:) thank you so much helping alot with toleratin me, i m such a pain abt math

i m so sorry i already kept you so long with this

Oh it's not problem, I'm just glad you understand now

Thank you so much :) you make this happend , it wasnt possible for me to understand

your too great!

ok you should go now, do your work cuz i took alot of ur time

i m so sorry

No reason to be sorry, as I said i'm just glad that you where able to understand

:) thanks alot!

No problem :)

:)
