    for all this, you need a "T" chart. you should probably ask your teahc how to do that. the equation for number 1 is 2(5+x) + 2x = 18. ^ ^ you multiply that because it gave you the perimeter. so you need to find the length of both equal sides. while "x" is for one of the sides. for number 2, im sorry but i just dont get it. 3) the equation is 4 + x + x = 28 or 4 + 2x = 28. ^ ^ because ryan worked 4 more hours. while the other "x" is the number of hours karl worked. 4) the equation is 3 + x + x = 41 -its similar to number 3.
