The length of a rectangle is 5 inches greater than the width. The sum of the length and width is 41 inches. Find the length and width of the rectangle.

    Well I would take 41 - 5 to get 36 and half of 36 is 18 so the width is 18 and the length is 18 + 5, 23.

    Is 41 inches the perimeter? Or is 41 just the sum of one length plus one width?
