Could someone please explain, not looking for just answer, needing to know how to do it.

**Steve**, Saturday, September 22, 2012 at 6:17amwidth = w

length = 4w+9.7

p = 2(w + 4w+9.7) = 9.1

w = -1.03

That seems odd, since widths are usually positive. But, looking at the data given, it's impossible for the length to be greater than 9.7 and have the perimeter be only 9.1

Better fix it if you want a sensible answer.
