The perimeter of a basketball court is 114 meter and the lenght is 6 meter longer than twice the width.

What are the lenght and Width. i need help please i am stuck

  • algebra -

    just put the words into symbols
    perimeter = 114
    length = 2width+6
    since perimeter = 2(length+width)
    2(2w+6+w)=114
    3w+6=57
    3w=51
    w=17

    so, the court is 17 by 40
