You must add ALL FOUR sides to get the perimeter.
how do i fond the length
find
Look at the picture. The width is w and the length is 3w + 3
so i just plug in the width and i get my answer
What is w?
9
What is 3w?
do u mean 3*9 or 3w more than the width
3w means 3 times w so if w is 9 then 3w means 3 times 9 which is 27. So 3w = 27. Now what is 3w + 3?
30
So what is the length of the rectangle?
w is 9 and the length is 30
Good job!!
