### 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 perimeter of a rectangle is 600 yards. what are the dimensions of the rectangle if the length is 20 yards more then the width

160 by 140

The perimeter is 600, so 2w+2l=600 where w is the width and l is the length.
Divide both sides by 2: w+l=300
The length is 20 more than the width: l=w+20
Substituting in the previous equation: w+(w+20)=300
Collecting terms: 2w+20=300
Subtract 20 from both sides: 2w=280
Divide by 2: w=140
Thus the width is 140. Substituting into the equation for length: l=140+20
Simplifying: l=160
The width is 140 and the length is 160

### What is the perimeter of a 1 x 3 rectangle?

Rectangle has two pairs of equal sides.
L=length=3 units
w=width =1 unit
Perimeter = sum of the measures of all sides.
2 sides with measure L: sum of lengths=2*L
2 sides with measure w: sum of widths=2*w
Perimeter = 2L+2w=2(L+w)=2(1+3)=8 units.

### 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.

### 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.
