Perimeter = 2 lengths and 2 widths

In your case length + width = 25cm

If length is 5cm more than width then length = 15cm and width = 10cm

the length of a rectangle is 5 more then the width. Find the perimeter and the area of the rectangle

Let the width of rectangle is w cm (Length is 12 cm more) so length is w + 12 Perimeter = 16 times of width 2 (length + width) = 16 * width Rest of the homework, do yourself.

the perimeter of a rectangle is 700 yards. what are the dimensions of the rectangle if the lenght is 80 yards more than the width?

Perimeter = length + width + length + width = 2 x (length + width) Given: perimeter = 22in length = width + 3in Thus 22 = 2 x (width + 3 + width) 11 = 2 x width + 3 8 = 2 x width 4 = width So the width is 4in.

You don't have enough information to find the exact length of the width, but the width has to be less then 7.5 if it smaller then the length.

Do-it-in-your-head method: Length + width is half the perimeter which is 27 inches; 27 minus 6 is 21 and one-third of 21 is 7 which is the width. (Length = 2 x 7 + 6 = 20)

The length could be 3 cm (width = 1 cm), with a perimeter of 8 cm, which is not more than 72 cm. Or it could be 6 cm (w = 2 cm, perimeter = 16 cm).

Suppose the width=x so the length will be= (2x+3) Now perimeter of rectangle = 2(length+width) so, 186=2(x+2x+3) or, 3x+3=93 or, 3x=90 so, x=30 so the width of the rectangle is 30meters

length + width = 1/2 x 60 in = 30 inches The length is 3 inches more than than the width, so length is 16.5 inches and width is 13.5 inches.

Length + width = half the perimeter, but more info eg area, is needed.

the length of a rectangle is 8 more than the width. the area os 345 centimeters. find the length and width of the rectangle
