You must use a variable , write an equation and solve the equation!

5(X) = 13' 6"

5(X) = 162 inches

32.4 inches or 2.7 feet

is this correct

if the width is x feet then the length is 5x feet

perimeter = 2width + 2 length

so ..

2x + 2(5x) = 13.5

12x = 13.5

x = 1.125 feet

so the width is 1 1/8 feet

the length is 5(1.125) = 5 5/8 feet
