Either the width increases, decreases or remains the same. Which of these three choices makes the most intuitive sense?

We know perimeter = 2(length +width)

If perimeter = 70 then 70/2=length + width so whatever the length increases by, the width decreases by.

Thus 35 = (length + x) + (width - x)

Does that make sense?
