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 .

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

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

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!
