The perimeter of a 7-sided figure is 15. If the length of each side of the figure is increased by 2 units, what is the perimeter of the new figure?
It does not matter what each individual side measures.
If each of the 7 sides is increased by 2........then the total perimeter is increased by 2(7 sides) or 14
Original perimeter (15) + Increase (14) = 29
