1. P=2L+2w p=700 meters w= .75 x L 700/4 sides 175 =4 equal sides i substituted 150 in for w. then subed 200 in for L L= 200 W= 150 2.The width of my computer room is _____% of its length. If the perimeter is 52 feet, then what are the length and width?

    1. Solve the following problem. The width of a rectangular lot is 75% of its length. If the perimeter is 700 meters, then what are the length and width?

    P=2l+2w is the perimeter of a rectangular room. P=700 width is 3/4 of the lenght...

    700 = 2l + 6l/4

    I'm not sure what the question is in the first one...because i think you solved it... for the second question let L = length let W = width let x = percentage (ie 5%, then x would be 0.05) W = L*x 2W + 2L = 52 substitute 2(L*x) + 2L = 52 L*x + L = 26 L ( x + 1) = 26 L = 26 / (x+1) W = (26*x) / (x+1)

    700 = 14l/4 280 = 14l 280/14 = l l = 140/7 = 120

    l = 700; w = 350/4 if we go the top route and thats after I fixed my glaring fauxpas :)

    1. Solve the following problem. The width of a rectangular lot is 75% of its length. If the perimeter is 700 meters, then what are the length and width? 2. Measure the length and width of any rectangular (not square) room in your residence, and calculate the perimeter. Determine what percent of the length the width of the room is. Write a problem following the format below and post it for your classmates to solve. The width of my (living room, family room, etc) is ____% of its length. If the perimeter is ____ meters, then what are the length and width? Due by 11:59 MST on Friday. 3 Pick a problem posted by your classmate and solve it either by substitution or elimination. Make sure to pick the problem not solved by somebody else and show all steps in the solution. Explain why you chose the method you did. Due by 11:59 MST on Sunday.

    percent is figured out by taking the "part" and dividing by the "total"; times 100. 35/100 = .35 .35 * 100 = 35% :)

    if the length is 144 and the width is 98: the percentages are: l/w = .xxx times 100 = xx.x%

    W = (.75)L 700 = 2(.75L) + 2L 700 = 1.5L +2L 700 = 3.5L 700/3.5 = L L = 200. W = .75(200) = 150

    hey r u there amistre64? yesterday you helped me with this The width of my room, is 25% of its length. If the perimeter is 70 meters, then what are the length and width? was that 70meters or 70 ft this is my teacher response Please check your measurements. First, the ratio of the width to the length is too small. Your room must very narrow. Second, the perimeter of 70 meters appears to be to big for a room in a residence. Is it in meters or feet?
