56/2 = 28

Any width more than 28 cm will make the perimeter greater than 88 cm.

**DrBob222**, Saturday, August 2, 2008 at 2:09pmMs. Sue's answer is correct. If you would like to see the work set in in the form of an equation,

Let x = the width

16 = length.

The perimeter is 88.

88 = x + x + 16 + 16

88 = 2x + 32

88-32 = 2x

56 = 2x

x = 56/2 = 28.
