A rectangle is 4 times as long as it is wide. A 2nd rectangle is 5centimeters longer and 2 centimeters wider than the first. what are the dimensions of the original rectangle?

  • math -

    original:
    width = x
    length = 4x

    new rectangle:
    width = x+2
    length = 4x + 5

    nothing else is given to form any type of equation.

    Your question cannot be answered, something is missing.
