**Marth**, Sunday, January 2, 2011 at 3:00pmLet l be the length.

Let w be the width.

"The length is 7m more than twice and width."

l = 2w+7

The perimeter of a rectangle is P=2(l+w).

Substitute in l=2w+7 for the length.

80 = 2(2w+7+w)

80 = 2(3w+7)

80 = 6w + 14

66 = 6w

w = 11

l = 2w+7

l = 29
