\[3l=w \]

l represents length and w represents width. Therefore, the length w is 3 times bigger than the length. The equation for perimeter is \[P=2l+2w\]

Now just plug in the value for w in terms of l and it looks like this: \[P = 2l+2(3l)\]

Now remember that the given perimeter was 56m so setting P = 56 m, you get: \[56 = 2l+6l\]

  • anonymous
now solve for l which is \[56 = 8l \rightarrow l=56/8\rightarrow 7\]

you know that 3 times the length is the width, therefore, knowing the length, 3 times 7 is 21 and 21 is the width of the rectangle.
