Hi again math solvers! Just like to ask you one math question.

The figure below is made up of two identical rectangles

and a square. Find the perimeter of the figure.

Please note that the diagram is an attachment named 'attachment.jpg'.

perimeter of each rectangle = 40 (15+5+15+5)

but the side of square is joined and thus cannot be counted.
so effective perimeter = 40 - 6 = 34

similarly perimete of square = 6 *4 = 24
but 2 sides of square are joined to rectangle and thus cannot be counted.
so effective perimeter = 6 *2 = 12

Total perimeter of figure = 34 *2 + 6*2 = 80
