the length of a rectangle is 5 ft more than twice the width.
a)if x represents the width of the rctangle, represent the perimeter of the rectangle in terms of x.
b) if the perimeter if the rectangle is 2 ft more than eight times the width of the rectangle, find the dimensions of the rectangle.
the length of a rectangle is 5 ft more than twice the width(x)
would be written as: length = 2x+5
Now you can proceed to calculate the perimeter=2(W+L), and attempt part (b).posted by MathMate
