that all the info it gave
okay dont worry about that.
tell me if you know the formula for the perimeter of a rectangle
okay it is 2 * ( width + length)
so lets call the length L and the width W .
so what can you tell me about the relationship between L and W from your problem?
the problem states 2 more then 4 times the width and the perimeter is 158
so the length is 2 more than 4 times the width.
If the width is W, then what is L?
so thats it, the with of the pigpen is 15.4
to find the length, just use the formula and substitute the width with 15.4
158= 30.8 +2L
63.6 = L
so the length is 63.6.
