If a six-sided polygon has 3 sides of length x + y each, and 3 sides of length x – y each, what is its perimeter?

Total perimeter = sum of all sides

3 sides have length x+y and remaining 3 sides have length x-y

=> Total perimeter = 3*(x+y)+3*(x-y) = 6x

Perimeter = 3(x + y) + 3(x - y) = 3x + 3y + 3x - 3y = 6x
