the length of a retangle is twice the width.the area is 200yd^2??? Can someone help me please!!!!!find the lenght and width

  • math -

    L = 2w
    W = w

    A=Lxw
    200= (2w) (w)
    200 = 2w^2
    200 = 2w^2

    200 divided by 2 = w^2
    100 = w^2
    square root of 100 = w
    w= 10

    Therefore the length is 20 and the width is 10.
