**JJ**, Friday, February 15, 2013 at 5:41pmlength is twice the width

L = 2W

area is length times width.

72 = (2w(w)

72 = 2w^2

divide both sides by 2 to get 36 and then take the square root of 36 to find "w". double that value to find the length. Check by multiplying l times w to see if you get 72.
