    Perimeter = 2*(length + width)

    Ok so how would I solve this if we know that the width is 85 but we dont know what the length is?

    Well, we would start by taking 392 and dividing it by 2. You would get?

    Exactly! Now, we take 196 - 85 and you will have the width :) If you want, you can plug your answer into the formula vocaloid provided to check and make sure :)

    Exactly! Great job :) And we can check this with the formula, 111 + 85 = 196 196 x 2 = 392!
