S = 2F; F = 2A S + F + A =36

S = 4A, F = 2A 4A + 2A + A = 36

okay

Woops meant not S = 2F, its S = 3F (Three times as long as fred's)
bahrom7893
  • bahrom7893
S = 3F F = 2A A S + F + A = 36 (total length)
bahrom7893
  • bahrom7893
S = 3F, but F = 2A => S = 3*2A = 6A
bahrom7893
  • bahrom7893
So you have: S = 6A F = 2A A = A (A is just A) S + F + A = 36 6A + 2A + A = 36

  • bahrom7893
9A = 36 = > A = 4

F = 2A = 2*4 = 8 meters => Fred's rope is 8 meters long, please click on become a fan if I helped, thanks!
