    .If the perimeter of a rectangular house is 44 yards and the length is 36 feet. What is the width of the house? We can either change yards to feet, or feet to yards...<< 1. Changing yards to feet. Perimeter = 44 yards = 44(3 feet) = 132 feet Perimeter = 2(Length + Width) P = 2(L + W) 132 = 2(36 + W) 132 = 72 + 2W 132 - 72 = 2W 60 = 2W 30 = W So the width is 30 feet.

    Changing feet to yards. Length = 36 feet = 36(1/3 yard) = 12 yards Perimeter = 2(Length + Width) P = 2(L + W) 44 = 2(12 + W) 44 = 24 + 2W 44 - 24 = 2W 20 = 2W 10 = W So the width is 10 yards.
