| P (perimeter) is the sum of the lengths of all sides. P = a + b + c.

By condition, we have a triangle ABC, where AB = 16 cm, BC -?, But 14 cm more than AB, and AC is 2 times less than BC. Find the perimeter of R.

1) BC = AB + 14 = 16 + 14 = 30 (cm).

2) AC = BC / 2 = 30/2 = 15 (cm).

3) P = AB + BC + AC = 16 + 30 + 15 = 61 (cm).

Answer: the perimeter of triangle ABC is 61 (cm).
