A reguluation racquetball court should have a perimeter of 120 ft, with a length that is twice the width find the length and the width of a court

• Algebra -

W = Width

L = Length

P = Perimeter

L = 2 W

P = 2 L + 2 W = 120 ft

2 * 2 W + 2 W = 120

4 W + 2 W = 120

6 W = 120 Divide both sides by 6

W = 120 / 6

W = 20 ft

L = 2 W

L = 2 * 20

L = 40 ft
