Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We know the perimeter of a rectangle is 2 * width + 2 * length, and we know that the length is 3* width, so: 2W + 2L = 60 L = 3W Now we can substitute 3W for L: 2W + 2L = 60 2W + 2(3W) = 60 2W + 6W = 60 8W = 60 W = 7.5 L = 3W = 3(7.5) = 22.5 So the rectangle is 7.5 x 22.5
