1. What about a square with one side equal to 4 feet?

All sides of a square are the same length and so, the perimeter = 16 feet.

What about an scalene triangle? A scalene triangle does not have the same length on all 3 sides.

You can use a scalene triangle with side 1 = 4 feet, side 2 = 10 feet and side 3 = 2 feet for a total of 16 feet for the perimeter.

We now have a square and a scalene triangle that = 16 feet.

We need one more shape.

How about a rectangle whose length is 7 feet and width is 1 foot.

A rectangle has two length and two widths.

So, we have 7 feet + 7 feet + 1 foot + 1 foot for a total of 16 feet.

There you have 3 shapes that = 16 feet.

Done!
