Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The formula for the perimeter is \(P =2(\rm length + width)\).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Since the length is \(15\) and the width is \(x\), we have this equation:\[2(15 + x) = 54\]Solve for \(x\).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OK, so do you know that the perimeter is the sum of ALL sides?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Notice that opposite sides in a rectangle are equal.dw:1357571260853:dw

ParthKohli

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the sum of sides will be \(15 + 15 + x + x\). But it is also given that the sum of all sides (perimeter) is \(54\).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So solve the equation \(15 + 15 + x + x = 54\)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I can't get on my study page o_o no don't divide by 15 subtract 15+15 from the perimeter and then divide by 2
