The perimeter of an equilateral triangle is 24 centimeters. Each side of the triangle measures 2.5 centimeters more than the length of each side of a square. The length of each side of the square is centimeters, and the length of each side of the triangle is centimeters. The perimeter of the square is centimeters.

If the perimeter of an equilateral triangle is 24 centimeters, then each side length must be 8 centimeters (24÷3 = 8). Now if the triangle is 2.5 centimeters more than the length of each side of a square, the length of one side of the square must be 5.5 centimeters (8-2.5 = 5.5). If the perimeter of a square is the side length multiplied by four, the perimeter of the square must be 22. 

In summary:
Length of side of square = 5.5cm
Length of side of triangle = 8cm
Perimeter of square = 22cm
