    Answer:

    Rectangles! Nice.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    This is a very simple problem. Let’s first represent the width of the rectangle as the variable x.

    Then, we know that the length of the triangle is x+2. See where I’m going with this?

    The formula for the perimeter of an rectangle is P=2*Length+2*Width.

    All we have to do next is just input our values for the length and width, and you’ll be golden!

    56=2(x+2)+2(x)\\56=4x+4

    Next to subtract 4 from both sides and then to divide by 4!

    52=4x\\x=13

    There’s your answer! Don’t know why Brainly is bugged right now.

    NOTE: If you can’t read the answer above, the width is 13cm. This also means that the length is 15cm.

    Hope this helps!

    Stay safe!
