a 6 sided shape has a perimeter of 62 inches one side is 11 inches long and the other side is 11 inches long

the lengths of the other 4 sides are equal what is one of those 4 sides.

 

Let x = the other 4 sides

 

\(\begin{array}{|rcll|} \hline 62 &=& 11 + 11 + 4x \\ 62 &=& 22 + 4x \\ 62-22 &=& 4x \\ 40 &=& 4x \quad & | \quad : 4 \\ 10 &=& x \\ \hline \end{array}\)

 

The other 4 sides are 10 inches long.
