    2widths and 2lenghts give perimeter. and length times width is area you have to unkowns in two equations solve for one then substitute

    \[2l+2w=perimeter\]

    substitute 18.9 for w and solve for l in the second equation

    in the second equation lenght times width equalls area subtitute 18.9 then solve for l by dividing both sides of the equation by w

    now substitute l and w in the first equation to get the perimeter.
