$26x+28$ feet

Work Step by Step

To find the perimeter, write an expression for each side that multiplies it by 2: $2(3x+16)+2(10x-2)$ Distribute the 2's. $6x+32+20x-4$ Combine like terms. Add $6x$ and $20x$. $26x$ Now subtract 4 from 32. $26x+28$. The perimeter is $26x+28$ feet. Since we do not know the exact value of X and this is not an equation, this is the final answer.
