Two word problems (geometry), one on peremeter and the other one about a triangle.

Two word problems I think I solved, but I do not have an example.

If the width of paper is x inches and its length is 3 more than twice the width, express the perimeter as an expression in x.


A plot of land is in the shape of a triangle.  If one side is x meters, a second side is 2x-3 meters, and a third side is 3x-5 meters, express the perimeter of the lot as an expression in x.
