    Yeah, there really isn't another way to find the perimeter in that case. It's always LengthxWidth for a rectangle.

    Err what am I thinking, that's area. For the perimeter, you wouldn't really need to foil. Just multiply each by 2 and then add them together.

    2(4x+8)+2(9x-5) =4x+8+19x-10 =22x-2
