**drwls**, Saturday, February 4, 2012 at 6:12amLet the length be L. The width W must then be 3L/5, so that the L/W ratio is 5:3.

Also,

Perimeter = 2(L+W) = 144

2L + 2*(3L/5) = (16/5)L = 144

which leads to

L = 45 meters

W = (3/5)L = 27 meters

**bobpursley**, Saturday, February 4, 2012 at 6:12amperimeter: 2L+2B

144=2L+2B

but L/B=5/3 or L=5B/3

then 144=10B/3+2B=16B/3 or B= 3*144/16

solve for B, then L= 5B/3
