### How do you find the length of a rectangle if the perimeter is 40 and the width is 2inches?

perimeter = 2 x (length + width)
⇒ length + width = perimeter ÷ 2
⇒ length = (perimeter ÷ 2) - width
So to find the length of the given rectangle, subtract the width
from half the perimeter is how to do it.
IF you meant "What is the length..." then:
length = perimeter ÷ 2 - width
= 40 ÷ 2 - 2 in
= 20 - 2 in
= 18 in

### What is the perimeter of a rectangle whose with is 6?

I think you mean the width is 6. The answer depends entirely on
what the length of the rectangle is. For example, if it is a
square, so that the length and width are both 6, the answer is 24.
I the length is 10, the perimeter is 32. In general, just add the
width (6) to the length and double the sum to get the
perimeter.

### How is perimeter and area related in a rectangle?

The perimeter of a rectangle is the distance around the
rectangle. The area of a rectangle is the space inside the
rectangle. To calculate either one you need the length and the
width of the rectangle. To calculate the area multiply the length
times the width. To calculate the perimeter add the
length+width+length+width (that is the distance all the way
around)
