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.

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.
