The length of a rectangle is twice the width. The area is 242 yd^2. Find the length and the width of the rectangle.
The width would be? The length would be?

I am not sure if I am to take 242 and sqrt it to give me 58,564 and then divide by 4 or what. I am lost with this.

  • Math Word Problem - ,

    L = 2W

    L * W = 242

    2W * W = 242

    Solve for W, then L.

  • Math Word Problem - ,

    So the L=242 and the W=60.5

    Or am I way off base with this?

  • Math Word Problem - ,

    Or would the L=484 and the W=242

  • Math Word Problem - ,

    no, work out PsyDAG's equation.

    2W*W = 242
    W^2 = 121
    W = √121 = 11

    so W = 11
    L = 2W = 22

    Check:
    Area = 11*22 = 242

  • Math Word Problem - ,

    6+6

  • Math Word Problem - ,

    The area of a rectangle is
    99 ft2
    , and the length of the rectangle is
    7 ft
    more than twice the width. Find the dimensions of the rectangle.
