The length of a rectangle is 1 meter more than 5 times it's width. The perimeter of the rectangle is 98 meters. Find the length and width of the rectangle.

w + (5w+1) = 49
now get w and figure length. 
So is it 5w^2+1w=49? I'm still confused.

who told you to multiply? We don't care about the area. Just add them up. The width plus the length (5w+1) = 1/2 the perimeter
w+5w+1 = 49
6w = 48
w = 8
so, length = 41 
My bad. I forgot that we were adding, not multiplying. Thank you

Two airplanes leave St. Louis at the same time and fly in opposite directions. If one travels at 500 kilometers per hour, and the other at 600 kilometers per hour, how long will it take for them to be 1925 kilometers apart?

The perimeter of a rectangle is 180 meters. The length is 50 meters greater than the width. Find the dimensions of the rectangle.
