(a) Write the height in terms of the width and write an equation for the perimeter in terms of the width.

I know that the height would be h=0.62w

but I don't know how to set up the perimeter. I think it goes something like p=_w. So, could you help out with figuring out what goes there in the blank.

**Reiny**, Sunday, November 18, 2007 at 3:22pmto go around the frame, which is what the perimeter is, you will need two widths and two heights.

so..

2w + 2h = 2

or

w + h = 1 by dividing by 2

but h = .62w

so w + .62 w = 1

1.62w = 1

solve for w
