You want the blanket to be 6600 square inches using 84 square inch rectangles. Dividing 6600 by 84 gives about 78 and a half.

### 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

### A rectangle is 5 feet long and 6 feet wide. what is the perimeter of the rectangle?

Hi Jacqueline:
A rectangle has four sides, the lengths of the opposite sides are equal, and the corners are right angles.
The perimeter is the distance around the outside edge, so it would be twice the length plus twice the width.
2 times 5 = 10 feet
2 times 6 = 12 feet
10 plus 12 = 22 feet

What is important is to understand the question.
If you need help with the course, get back to me.

### Suppose that the width of a certain rectangle is 5 inches more than one-fourth of its length. The perimeter of the rectangle is 50 inches. Find the length and width of the rectangle.

Ok
2L + 2W = 50 (i)
W = L/4 + 5 (ii)

So 4W = L + 20 from (ii) and
4W = 100 - 4L from (i)
L + 20 = 100 - 4L
5L = 80
L = 16
W = 9 from (ii)

check
(i) 2*16 + 2*9 = 50
(ii) 16/4 + 5 = 9 = W

### What is perimeter of 12x7 rectangle

Perimeter means 'how far round is it?' So if you walked round this rectangle, you would walk along 12 + 7 + 12 + 7 units = 38
It is quicker to say 2 x [12+7] = 2 x 19 = 38 ie walk half way round and double it

### 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.

### Please show all of the information and answers to: The plane was purchased new in 2006; therefore, x =0 represents the year 2006. X - Axis (horizontal) = years starting from 0 = 2006 and increasing b

Translate the English into Mathematics.
W=L-5 (in inches)
P=2(L+W)=2(L+L-5)=2(2L-5)
Use distirbutive property of multiplication with respect to addition to open up the parentheses (brackets)
P=4L-10.
Set P= 50 (inches), to get 4L-10=50
Solve for L: Do it'!
Find W= L (the one you just found) -5 =

Now, with W the value you just calculated
the new length is L'=-4+3W
and the new perimeter is P'=2(L'+W)

Now your turn to do some work.

### If you know about area formulas of class 8 and 9,please solve my question?there is a circle.in the between of the circle,there is a rectangle of dimension 4cm and 3cm.if the rectangle will cut out what...

The diameter of the circle is the diagonal of the rectangle use Pythagoras this rectangle is a made from two 3,4,5 triangles, so the diameter is 5cm, the radius will be 2.5cm don't forget the BODMAS ordering rule (Brackets of Division Multiplication Addition and Subtraction) Also rounding to 2 decimal places. This solution is based on all four corners of the rectangle touching the circumference of the circle.

Area of a circle is P (22/7) i x Radius (squared ^2) ====> 22/7 x 2.5cm ^ 2 ====> 22/7 x 6.25cm

TOTAL AREA of CIRCLE = 19.64 cm^2

Area of the rectangle is length x width ====> 4 cm x 3 cm

TOTAL AREA of RECTANGLE = 12 cm ^2

The remaining portion is the circle area minus the rectangle 19.64-12 = 7.64 cm^2
