Okay, so in class we're learning about Systems of Equations. What are the equations for this? How do I define the variables?

**PsyDAG**, Tuesday, February 16, 2010 at 11:18am2W + 2L = perimeter = 74

2W = 74 -2L

2(2W) + 2(L/2) = 76

Substitute 74 - 2L for 2W in the last equation and solve for L. Put that value in the first equation to find W. Check by putting both values into the last equation.
