Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let : x = length y = width Think: perimeter = sum of the exterior sides of a particular polygon. Therefore, the perimeter of a rectangle = two lengths + two widths 2x + 2y = 36  1st equation We can make a second by looking at the 2nd half of the question. If the length is 4 cm greater than the width, the width is equal to the length  4 cm. y = x  4  second equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then we substitute one equation into the other to solve for one of the dimensions. For example, 2x + 2(x4) = 36 4x 8 = 36 4x = 28 x = 7 cm Sub. x = 7 into either of the equations. y = 7  4 y = 3 cm
