perimeter = length + length + width + width = 2*length + 2*width = 36

length = 5*width

2*(5*width) + 2*width = 36

12*width = 36

width = 3

length = 15

There are no dimensions in a oreo cookie because it is round. You can find dimensions in squares, By measuring length times width for its Area, And measuring all four sides and adding them up equals perimeter.


No. Area and perimeter use different units to begin with; square units and linear units respectively. They can never be the same because they operate in different dimensions. Secondly, area is found by multiplying the dimensions, length times width; in a square this is the length of one side times itself, hence the term 'squaring' to describe such an operation. Perimeter is found by adding all sides; in a square this is effectively four times one side length.


2 times length plus 2 times width = perimeterhalf the perimeter of a rectangle


The area is the length times the width. The perimeter is two times the length plus two times the width.


If people say that "perimeter is the length times width" stop listening to them. They don't know what they are talking about.Length times width is the area, not the perimeter. For a square or rectangle, the perimeter is double the sum of the length and the width.

The perimeter is the length plus width times 2.


Subtract two times the length from the perimeter and cut that answer in half.


The answer depends on what information you have. If you have the length of a side, then the perimeter is nine times that length.


Area is length times width, perimeter is twice the sum of length and breadth.


The perimeter is 2 times the length plus 2 times the width.


Perimeter = length + length + width + width Let "w" = width, then "7w" must equal the length (because it's 7 times the width) 7w + 7w + w + w = perimeter 16w = perimeter


For a rectangle:Perimeter = 2 times (length plus width).This works for a square too.For a square:Perimeter = 4 times (length of any side).


For a square, the area is the length of a side squared and the perimeter is 4 times the length. If the area is 49, then the length of a side is 7. The perimeter is then 4 times 7, or 28.


Perimeter= 2length x 2widthSince the perimeter is 40 and 2 times the width is 16, that means 2 times the length is 24. The length is 12.


The perimeter of a regular pentagon is five times the side length.

The perimeter is four times the length of any of the sides.
