  1. length ----x m
    width ---- 2x-20 m

    2x + 2(2x-20) > 56
    6x - 40 > 56
    6x > 96
    x > 16

    min length is 17m, min width is 14 m

    note, a length of 16 and a width of 12 would give you an exact perimeter of 56, but it said it had to be greater than 56 , and the sides had to be integers.
