a brick only has 3 dimensions.
Not sure what to do with the 4 values you give. 
in my book it gives me that problem

i really need HELP with this

We can't help you because your problem appears to have an error.
As you stated it, the problem can not be solved. 
do you thin if i take out one of the 2x+2 what would the answer be different

This is Cayla's mom, it really has it in her book. This is one of those tricky answers hopefully...Thank you for helping us.

It's not a tricky answer. It's a mistake. Have Cayla check with her teacher about it.

Also, solids are not generally considered to have perimeters. They have volume and surface area.
I guess the sum of the 12 edges could be considered a perimeter, but it's an unusual terminology.
