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
