    No. I'm asking you. I'm assuming this must have been introduced to you otherwise they would have stated it explicitly.

    No. In general terms. The perimeter of a rectangle = 2*lenght + 2*width

    Let x = width then, length would be represented as width + 58 inches or x+58 = length. Now plug this into the equation for perimeter getting 2x + 2(x+58) = 276 2x +2x + 116 = 276 4x = 276 -116 =160 x=160/4=40 width x+58=98 length.
