# The length of a rectangle is 5 feet longer than its width The area of the rectangle is 374 square feet What are the dimensions of the rectangle?

17 and 22

### What is the length of a garden with a width of 20 meters and an area of 200 square meters?

The area of a rectangular garden is length * width. You have 200 = Length * 20, and so Length = 10 metres. Conventionally, for a rectangle, the length is the longer of the two dimensions, though for a garden, it is often the distance from the back of the house to the end of the garden that is referred to as the length - even if it is the shorter dimension.

### The length of a rectangle is 8 feet longer than its width which has the same dimension as the side of a square If the area of the rectangle is equal to 160 square feet more than the area of the squa?

length = 56 with = 48 Improved Answer: Presumably your question is about finding the dimensions of a rectangle? If so then let the length be (x+8) the width be x and the square be x2: (x+8)*x = x2+160 square feet x2+8x = x2+160 x2-x2+8x = 160 8x = 160 x = 20 Therefore: length = 28 feet and width = 20 feet Check: 28*20 = 400+160 = 560 square feet

### Do the two opposite sides of a rectangle have to be longer than the other two opposite sides?

Usually when thinking of a rectangle we see that two parallel sides are longer than the other two. However a rectangle is just defined as having four right angles so a square can be a rectangle meaning that a rectangle may have all four sides of the same length. A square is always a rectangle. A rectangle is not always a square.

### If the area of a rectangle is 18 square inches and the length of the rectangle is twice it's width what is the length and width of the rectangle?

A rectangle with one side that is double the length of the other side can be seen as two squares beside each other, that are half the area of the original rectangle, in this case 18 square inches / 2 = 9 square inches. The side of a square is the square root of the area, in this case the square root of 9 square inches, which is 3 inches. Now think about the rectangle…

### What is the area of the rectangle with side of length of 12 meters?

You've clearly called the figure a 'rectangle' and not a 'square'. Therefore, we expect its length and width to be different numbers. But you've only given us one of its dimensions, so we're quite sure that we can't answer the question. If your figure turned out to be a square after all, then a single dimension is all that we would need, since the length and width of a square are the same number. In…
