    Answer:

    x = 3

    Step-by-step explanation:

    x + x + x + 2 + x + 2 = 16 (combine like terms)

    4x + 4 = 16 (subtract 4 from each side)

    4x = 12 (divide each side by 4)

    x = 3

    Let’s check:

    (3 + 2) × 2 = 10

    3 × 2 = 6

    10 + 6 = 16

    It works.

    Answer:

    length= 5 km

    Width=3 km

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Length=Width+2

    L=W+2

    Perimeter = 16 km

    Perimeter of the rectangular field = 2(Length+Width)

                                         16 = 2*(Width+2+Width)\\\16=2(W+2+W)\\\\16=2(2W+2)\\\\16/2=2W+2\\\\8=2W+2\\\\2W=8-2\\\\2W=6\\\\W=6/2\\\\W=3 km

    Length(L)=Width+2= 3+2=5 km

    length= 5 km

    Width=3 km
