ok, well i have tryed to solve and ended up with answer 7. is this correct ?

You have a rhombus ABCD. AB+BC+CD+DA = 80. CD = 2x+6.

Since all sides of a rhombus are equal, you can set up the equation:

Distribute:

Subtract 24

Divide by eight:

Simplify:

Let's check it by plugging it into the original equation.

7 is correct.
