The perimeter of a regular pentagon is 41.5 cm. Write and solve an equation to determine the length of each side of the pentagon.

Because a pentagon has five sides, but we don't know exactly how long just one side is, your equation would be 5x=41.5, where x represents the length of just one side. To solve the equation you divide both sides by 5 to isolate your x, which gives you the answer 8.3. Each side of the pentagon is 8.3 cm.
