The formula for perimeter is, P = 2w + 2 L 30 = 2w + 2L 30 = 2(w + l) 15 = w + l So, for a perimeter of 30, you want to sketch rectangles that the width and length total 15. Some possible rectangles, 14 + 1 = 15 13 + 2 = 15 12 + 3 = 15 11 + 4 = 15 10 + 5 = 15 9 + 6 = 15 8 + 7...

Lisa, I hope I didn't sound mean to you. That is not my intention. You will never learn unless you try. It takes practice. :) Is there something in particular you don't understand about dealing with fractions?

Tutors do not do your homework. It is obvious that you are struggling with this. The only way you will learn is practice. Try these problems YOURSELF. If you have a specific question we will be more than happy to help, but YOU must attempt these problems first.

Ok, sorry, your answer 8 25/72, was the SUM, not the final answer, which is the average. 8 25/72 is correct for the sum. You have to divide the sum by 2, for the average. So however you were adding is correct.
