2. P = 2L + 2W

A. can't be right because the total perimeter is 268.
B. can't be right because the length and width are the same.
The perimeter for C. is 212.
Check and see if D. fits the problem.

2. 1. X is the score of the losing team...
x+ 27= winning team

Eguation:
winning score+losing score=total points scored
x+(x+27)=41

Solve:
x+(x+27)=41 combine x's...
2x+27=41 subtract 27 from both sides...
2x=14 get rid of the coefficient (divide by 2)
x=7

Conclusion:
The losing team scored 7 points (x=7).
As said previously the winning score is the losing score plus 27. (x+27)
7+27=34
Losing team= 7
Winning Team= 34
