The length of a rectangle is 1 meter more than 5 times it's width. The perimeter of the rectangle is 98 meters. Find the length and width of the rectangle.

  • Math -

    w + (5w+1) = 49
    now get w and figure length.

  • Math -

    So is it 5w^2+1w=49? I'm still confused.

  • Math -

    who told you to multiply? We don't care about the area. Just add them up. The width plus the length (5w+1) = 1/2 the perimeter

    w+5w+1 = 49
    6w = 48
    w = 8
    so, length = 41

    My bad. I forgot that we were adding, not multiplying. Thank you
