marcus and joannie are having a new family room added on. The length of the room is 6 feet less than double the length. If the perimeter is 78 feet,what is the dimension of the room?

  • math -

    I assume you mean the length of the room is 6 feet less than double the WIDTH.

    L = 2W - 6

    P = 2L + 2W
    78 = 2(2W - 6) + 2W
    78 = 4W - 12 + 2W
    78 + 12 = 6W
    90 = 6W
    15 = W
