Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The perimeter of a rectangle is twice the length plus twice the width. Let w be the width. Then the length is w + 12, and the perimeter is given by: 2(w + 12) + 2w = 64 Now you need to solve this equation to find the value of w. Then add 12 to the value of w to find the width.
