L = (2W)-5 = (6) - 5 = 1

so

W + W + L + L = perimeter

so 2W + 2L = perimeter

so subbing 2W-5 in for L we get

2W + 2(2W-5) = perimeter

= 2W + 4W-10 = perimeter

= 6W - 10 = perimeter

= 6(3) - 10 = perimeter

=18 - 10 = perimeter

= 8 = perimeter

or solving the other way L = 1 W = 3

2W + 2L = 6 + 2 = 8 = perimeter
