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.
