The area of a rectangle is A = LW, where A = area, L = length, W = width The width is W The length is 4 feet less than twice the width twice the width = 2W four feet less than twice the width = 2W - 4 L = 2W - 4 A = LW, but A = 170, so 170 = LW L = 2W - 4 Since the second equation is already solved for L, just plug that into the first equation and solve for W. Then plug in W in the second equation and solve for L

170=(2w-4)w once you get here do you distribute?
