The value of x is 8.

See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Step-1 – Given

Perimeter =22 units, length of each sides are x, x+1, 5.

Step-2 – To determine

We have to find the value of the x for the given triangle.

Step-3 – Calculation

The equation of the perimeter will be,


x+(x+1)+5=22x+x+1+5=222x+6=22 [combine like terms ]2x+66=226 [subtract 6 from each side]2x=162x÷2=16÷2 [divide each side by 2]x=8

Hence, the required value of x is 8.
