| The problem is solved in 2 steps.

The first step is to find out what the width of the rectangle is.

To do this, subtract 2 cm from the length of the rectangle (16 cm) (since the length is 2 cm more than the width of the rectangle):

1) 16 – 2 = 14 (cm) – the width of the rectangle.

In the second step, you need to find what the perimeter of the rectangle is.

To do this, substitute the values in the formula for the perimeter of the rectangle (P = 2 (a + b)), where a is the length, b is the width:

2) 2 * (16 + 14) = 52 (cm) – the perimeter of the rectangle.

Answer: 52 cm.
