In a kite, ABCD,AB = x + 2 , BC = 2x + 1. The perimeter of kite is 48cm. Find x and also find the length of each side.

As we know that, adjacent sides in a kite are equal.

∴ AB = AD and BC = CD.

Perimeter = sum of all the sides

P = AB + BC + CD + AD

48 = x + 2 + 2x + 1 + x + 2 + 2x + 1

48 = 6x + 6

⇒ 6x = 48 -6

∴ 6x = 42

x = 42/6

x = 7

∴ AB = AD = x + 2 = 7 + 2 = 9cm

and BC = CD = 2x + 1 = 2(7) + 1 = 14 + 1 = 15 cm
