A rectangular fence has a perimeter of 1080 feet. The length is 3 feet more than twice the width. I need to know the dimensions and how to figure it out.
so 2w + 2(2w+3) = 1080
I am sure you can take it from here.
how do you do two step equations
don't know what you mean by 'two step' equations but here is how I would continue
2w + 2(2w+3) = 1080
2w + 4w + 6 = 1080
6w = 1080 - 6
6w = 1074
w = 179
then length = 2w + 3 = 2(179) + 3 = 361
