Let x = the short side. Then the long side is the short side plus 6 meters
now we have 2 sides that are x meters long, add those together gives us 2x for the length
of both short sides

The length of the long side is x + 6 for one side and x + 6 for the other side. Added together we have x + 6 + x + 6 = 2x + 12

Adding the 4 sides together we get 2x ( the 2 short sides) + 2x + 12 (the long sides) we get 4x + 12 = the perimeter or 628. 4x + 12 = 628. Subtract 12 from both sides of the equation leaves 4x = 616. divide both sides by 4 leaves x = 154 So the width is 154 meters and the length is 160 meters.

Hope this helps

Good luck Loringh

### Would like to calculate the dimensions of a rectangular pool with a perimeter of 55 meters using decimals only

Let's break down the question to its components.

It is a rectangular pool. It has four sides, with a length and width and the angles in corners being 90 degrees.

Let l be the length of the pool.
Let w be the width of the pool.

The perimeter of the pool is l + l + w + w or 2l + 2w

So 2l + 2w = 55 metres

You could make up a table for all the possible values, starting with a width of 1. 2(1) + 2w = 55
2 + 2w = 55
2w = 53
w = 53 /2

Good luck,

Paul

### The length, l, of a rectangle is 5/2 its width, w. The length, l, of the rectangle is 10 inches. What is the perimeter of the rectangle? What Iis the area of the rectangle, in sauare inches?

We are given the following data:

length = 5/2 * width
length = 10 inWe know through the transitive

property of equality that the following must be true:

5/2 * width = 10 in

We then solve this equation algebraically for width:

width = (10 in) * 2/5
width = 4 in

The perimeter of the rectangle is given by substituting our known values of length and width into the following general equation:

Perimeter = 2 * length + 2 * width
Perimeter = 2(10 in) + 2(4 in) = 28 in

In a similar fashion, we substitute these known values into the general equation for the area of the rectangle to solve for the same:

Area = length * width
Area = (10 in)(4 in)=40 in^2

### The volume of a rectangular prism is 2,058 cubic cm. The length of the prism is 3 times the width. The height is twice the width. Find the length of the prism

Right Rectangular prism, Length L, width W, Height H
Volume=2058 cm^3=L*W*H
However
L=3W, and H=2W
(3W)*W*(2W)=6 W^3=2058
W^3=(2058/6)=343
W=Cube root of 343=(343)^(1/3)=7 cm
L=3*7=21 cm
H=2*7=14 cm

### How do you solve a rectangle is eight inches longer than its width. find the dimensions of the rectangle if the perimeter is 60 cm

The rectangle is 11cm by 19cm.

The perimeter is 60, so the width and length must add to 30. The length is 8 more than the width, or width+width+8=30. Solve that for width, then you can calculate the length based on the width.

If this is homework, be sure to show your work.

### A rectan Dear Madam Please look at the math questions below. Please help me solve the questions Question 1 : A rectangular tablecloth is 2.5 m long. Trim is to be sewn around the perimeter of the cloth...

1. Well this one is pretty simple. Since you are not supposed to trim the length trim the width instead.
to make the perimeter 0.4 m shorter cut the cloth by 0.2 m width the picture will make it clear.

2. let the length of rectangle be x cm
now original perimeter = 2(x+20) cm

new length = x-30 cm
breadth remains same = 20 cm
new perimeter = 2(x-30+20) cm = 2(x-10) cm

According to question

new perimeter = old perimeter /2
2(x-10) = 2(x+20) /2
2x -20 = x + 20
x = 40 cm

hence length of longer side 40 cm.

### What is rectangular prism?

Hello
Rectangular Prism/Cuboid Definition:
A Rectangular Prism/Cuboid is a solid figure bounded by six rectangular faces, a rectangular box. All angles are right angles, and opposite faces of a cuboid are equal. It is also a right rectangular prism.

Rectangular Prism/Cuboid Formula:
Area of Base(A) = l * w
Perimeter of Base(P) = 2l + 2w
Surface Area of Prism = 2(lw) + (2l + 2w)h = 2A + Ph
Volume of Prism = lwh = Ah
Diagonal of Prism = Sqrt(l² + w² + h²)
where
l = length, w = width, h = height

Hope this helps, if so do rate the solution
