**Geometry Find the value of x for the given triangle, rectangle or square.**

**Perimeter = 22 units**

The value of x is 8.

Perimeter =22 units, length of each sides are $x,\text{}x+1,\text{}5.$

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

The equation of the perimeter will be,

$x+(x+1)+5=22$

$\begin{array}{l}x+(x+1)+5=22\\ x+x+1+5=22\\ 2x+6=22\text{}\left[\text{combine like terms}\right]\\ 2x+6-6=22-6\text{}\left[\text{subtract 6 from each side}\right]\\ 2x=16\\ 2x\xf72=16\xf72\text{}\left[\text{divide each side by 2}\right]\\ x=8\end{array}$

Hence, the required value of x is 8.
