Textbook: Page 81, Question 32

32. The total area of the shape is 52 centimetres squared. What is it's perimeter?

- I found the answer by dividing 52 by 2, which gets me 26. I did this to put the two squares at the side away to let me see the rectangle in the middle.

- I know that the rectangle's perimeter is 10, so I finish the equation by adding ten, getting me to 36, which is the answer.
