Homework Help: Algebra

Posted by Willow on Monday, February 23, 2009 at 3:54pm.

The perimiter of a lot is 190 meters. The width is one-fourth of the length. Find the dimensions.

Here's my system of equations:

2w + 2L = 190
1/4L = w

What would I do from here? I prefer the elimination method. Would I multiply the second equation by 4? When I did so, it kind of messed up the equation.

Thanks! :)
