Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0try setting up the equations: you know that the perimeter of a box is twice the length + twice the width

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so let's use w for width and l for length we have that 2w+2l = 38

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but you are told that the length is 10 more than twice the width...so can you write that in equation form? i'll get you started.... length = 2 times width plus 10 (<=== write that in equation form)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you have w = L + 19?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0remember our original idea....that 2*length + 2*width = 38, your perimeter
