    2(26)+2h<180 2 times the width added to 2 times the height would be equal to the perimeter of a rectangle. You can substitute that expression for the part where it says the perimeter must be less than 180. You know that less than 180 translated into symbols is (<180) so you end up with 2(26)+2h<180. Tell me if you don't understand it.
