I don't understand this question AT ALL.

The length of a rectangle is 5 meters greater than the width. The perimeter is 150 meters. Find the length and width of the rectangle.

  • Algebra 1 - ,

    It means the length is 5 meters > the width or w + 5 = l
    The perimeter (distance around the rectangle) is w+w+l+l= 150

    Plug in w+5 for each l and solve for w, then l.
    Post your work if you get stuck.

    This really did not help me a lot. Well it did not help me at all.
