the perimeter p of a rectangle can be found using the formula p=2(l+w)

where l represents the length and w represents the width. which equation represents the width in the terms of p and l.

a) w=2(p-l)

b)w=p-l/2

c) w=2p-1

d) w=p/2-1

p=2l+2w

p-2l/2=w

p/2-l=w

the answer would be d)

Is this correct? Thanks for checking my work
