let x and y be length and width of the rectangel. y = 3/4 x when x and y are increased by 2cm perimeter becomes 50 cm 50= 2 ( (x+2) + ( 3/4x +2) ) 50 = 2 ( 7x/2 + 4) 50 = 7x + 8 7x = 42 x=6 length, width = 9/2 cm

Perimeter would equal 2L + 2W then P= 2*6 + 2*( 9/2) P=12+9=21 Shouldn't it be 50? What am I missing or is the solution wrong!

i'm sorry i made a small error in the previous one 50 = 2( 7x/4 +4 ) 50 = 7x/2 +8 7x/2 = 42 x= 12, y = 9 please note the corrections

Women’s records in the women’s 1500-m run. The formula R =−0.0026? + 4.0807 can be used to predict the world record, in minutes, for the 1500-m run t years after 1900. Determine (in terms of an inequality) those years for which the world record will be less than 3.8 min.

Thanks for info. It does check out now. I've been outside retrieving a boat that washed over the spillway. P=2(12+2)+2(9+2)=28+22=50
