Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok well I have go this far I think. a retangle has four sides. two sides are fixed at 21cm so that would be 42cm. they want it to be greater then 76.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you substract 7642=34 divide by 2 =17 so can 17 be the answer to the question?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or it could be 18 cause that is larger also. so it would be 42+36= 78

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Go slow. the width is 21, therefore 2(21)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Call the length x, therefore 2x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02w + 2l > 76 This is the general equation, use your numbers from what I posted above to put in this equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the width is 21*2=441

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so would that be 441+?=

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You are locked in on something, and apparently ignored everything I have written.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well you have said 2w which is = width correct

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The width is 2(21) that is given but that is not equal to 441?! That is mathematical nonsense.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I am trying to understand. Ok well I took it as 2*21 sry!!!!!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The perimeter is twice width and twice length. So the equation is 2(21)+2x>76

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that is 42 sry I wrote it wrong.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That is the equation, in the equation x represents the length. Depending on what answer your teacher wants you present the equation or you solve for x if you specifically want the length.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it just say the lenght must be greater then ? cm.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that is why I am came up with the answer that I have had.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Solve the equation and the answer x>17. You got this same answer earlier so you are apparently doing the right thing. I have just put in a neat equation so that if you have to explain it to your little brother he would understand it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the answer is 17 for the lenght correct

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You don't have to ask me, just solve the equation for x; and remove all doubt. But your language and phraseology is wrong: the length must be GREATER THAN 17.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know sorry I am not good at this but I got the correct answer.
