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 kmWidth=3 kmStep-by-step explanation:Length=Width+2

L=W+2

Perimeter = 16 km

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

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

length= 5 kmWidth=3 km
