CHECK MY WORK!!
The length of a rectangle is 24 units. Can the perimeter x of the rectangle be 60 units when its width y is 11 units?
No, the rectangle cannot have x = 60 and y = 11 because x = 48 + 2y
No, the rectangle cannot have x = 60 and y = 11 because x = 24 + 2y
Yes, the rectangle can have x = 60 and y = 11 because x + y is greater than 48
Yes, the rectangle can have x = 60 and y = 11 because x + y is greater than 24
I know that it is a or b, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes P = x L = 24 W = y P = 2*L + 2*W x = 2*24 + 2*y x = 48 + 2y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you'll find that if L = 24 and W = 11, then the perimeter is actually 70 (not 60)
