**Question:**

The length of each side o a square is 3 more than the length of each side of a regular pentagon. If the perimeters of the square and pentagon are equal, how long is each side of the pentagon?

**Option A):**

18**Option B):**

6**Option C):**

12**Option D):**

15**Option E):**

10

**Correct Answer is Option C):**

12

**Explanation:**

Solution:

Let x = the length of each side of the pentagon. Then x + 3

= the length of each side of the square. The perimeter of the pentagon is 5x and the perimeter of the square is 4(x + 3). Therefore:

5x = 4(x + 3) = 4x + 12 x = 12
