THe length of a rectangle is twice the width. The area is 200yd^2. What is the length and width. Is this right
L=20
w=10

• algebra -

L * W = 200
L = 2W

Substitute 2W for L in the first equation and solve for W. Once you find W, insert that into the second equation to find L.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.

• algebra -

check #1, yes, length is twice width
check #2, yes, the area is 20*10 = 200
however remember the units
