The dimensions of the fence are W x L L=3W It really depends on whether the farmer wants the barn along the width (W) or the length (L). If he wants the barn along the width, then the perimeter of the remaining 3 sides equals L+L+W. Subing L=3W gives 3W+3W+W = 240 feet. 7W=240 so W=34.29 feet. And L=3W=102.86 feet. If he wants the barn along the length, then the perimeter of the remaining 3 sides equals W+W+L. Subing L=3W gives W+W+3W = 240 feet. 5W=240 so W=48 feet. And L=3W=144 feet. http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20110524125520AAhjrfo
We have the condition \[L=3\times W\] Length is three times of width And also the perimeter of the rectangle equals 240 \[2(L+W)=240\] Can you find Length and width from this @selenamalter ?
