A rectangular fence has a perimeter of 1080 feet. The length is 3 feet more than twice the width. I need to know the dimensions and how to figure it out.

width: w
length: 2w+3
so 2w + 2(2w+3) = 1080
solve

don't know what you mean by 'two step' equations but here is how I would continue
2w + 2(2w+3) = 1080
2w + 4w + 6 = 1080
6w = 1080  6
6w = 1074
w = 179
then length = 2w + 3 = 2(179) + 3 = 361
