## anonymous one year ago 1. The length of a rectangle is twice its width. The perimeter of the rectangle is 24 inches. Write a system of equations in 2 variables. Use substitution to solve the problem. A. Equation 1: Equation 2: What is the area of the rectangle?

1. anonymous

let the length of a rectangle: x and the width of a rectangle: y

2. anonymous

so x=2y

3. anonymous

wait what?

5. anonymous

The perimeter of the rectangle: 2x+2y=24

6. anonymous

the area of the rectangle: $x \times y=$

7. anonymous

do you know how to find values of x & y?
