The length of a rectangle is 3 times the width . If the perimeter is to be at least 48 meters, what are the possible values for the width? (If the perimeter is at least 48 meters, then it is greater than or equal to 48 meters.)

Enter the expression for the width as an inequality. Do not include units in your answer.

width = x
length = 3x
perimeter = 3x+3x+x+x > or = 48

8x > or = 48
divide by 8

x > or = 6
