7. I still don't understand what the answer is. I added up all the numbers like triston did, and i got 34, but 34 is not an answer. The answer chocies they give is A)64 cm , B)32 cm , C)16 cm , or D) 22 cm. I think its 32 because its the closest to the answer triston gave, but i need help checking it, plz help me.
