Try putting the words into an equation. Remember that area is length times width and perimeter is the sum of all the sides.

|dw:1328139835963:dw| if my interpretation doesn't fail me. then usubstitute the following values of three (3) sides to the equation of finding the perimeter given the perimeter to find the unknown variable which is x. after finding x you can now find the length of each sides. .
