a. for the width in terms of the length.
W= l + 6= <36


b. Write an inequality for the perimeter.






c. Solve the inequality, clearly identifying the length of the rectangle.

    ignore the w= l + 6= < 36!!

  • Algebra 1 -

    W=L+6
    Perimeter=2(L+W)
    2L+2W=P
    2L+2(L+6)>36
    4L>36-12
    L>6
