Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a length of 14 feet and a perimeter of 44 feet means that your width can be obtained with a perimeter function: perimeter is a function of length and width p(l, w) 2l + 2w = p(l, w) 2(14) + 2w = 44 = p(14, w) 28 + 2w = 44 2w = 44  28 2w = 16 w = 8 so if you have a new square with a width of 8 the value of its area is the function: a(w) = w^2 a(8) = (8)^2 a(8) = 64 so your area will be 64 ft squared
