 Question 597809: If 6cm is added to each side of a square, its perimeter becomes 48cm. how long is each side of the square? This is what I've done, but the answer seems wrong. Let x be one of the sides of the square. Then, 6 + x will be the rest of the sides of the square 4x + 6 + x = 48 (combine like terms) 5x + 6 = 48 (subtract 6 from both sides) 5x = 42 (divide 5 from both sides) x = 8.4 I honestly don't know. Probably the "Let's" statement I've done wrong. Click here to see answer by jim_thompson5910(28595)
