Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Perimeter of a closed figure is simply the total length around the edges, so in case of a rectangle, it's perimeter is given by the sum of all sides or edges \[P=l+l+b+b=2l+2b=2(l+b)\] Now you are given \[l=5y+3\]\[b=4y+1\] and \[P=134\] So plug that in \[134=2((5y+3)+(4y+1))\] Now this equation can be solved for y, once you have the value of y you can solve for either length or breadth as required
