## anonymous 4 years ago The length of a rectangle is 4 inches more than its width, and its perimeter is 36 inches. Find the width of the rectangle. 11?

if w is the width,what is the length?

$P = 2(l + w)$$P = 2(w + 4 + w)$$36 = 2(2w + 4)$$\frac{36}{2} = \frac 22(2w + 4)$$18 = 2w + 4$Solve for w and there is your width.
