    u can put that to two equations as (a = side of triangle, b = side square) 3a =4b+11 a=b+6

    (a = side of triangle, b = side square). 3a is the perimeter of triangle, 4b perimeter of square. from question , a perimeter relationship can be found as 3a =4b+11 (perimeter of triangle = perimeter of square+ 11)

    similarly the side relationship can be found out as a= b+6 nw u hav 2 equations , can't u solve it.........
