## anonymous 5 years ago The length of a rectangle is six times its width. If the perimeter of the rectangle is 98 yd , find its area.

Let's call the rectangle u The sides of the rectangle are a and b: Then is $u = 2 \cdot (a+b)$ And $a=6 b$ $u = 2 \cdot (6b+b) = 14 \cdot b$ SO the width is 7 and the lengt is 42

And the area is 7x42?
