I think its 14
nope, let's start from the beginning
let L = length let W = width W = L - 6, with me so far?

yes
ok, now we use the formula for perimeter perimeter = 68 = 2(L+W), with me so far?
yup:)
good, now we can rewrite our formula we know that W = L - 6, so we can replace "W" with "L-6" whenever we see it perimeter = 2(L+W) = 2(L+L-6), understand so far?
Lol Ya
good, now let's put L + L together to get 2L perimeter = 2(2L-6) = 68 know how to solve for L now?
actually, you were right, W = 14, my bad ;_:
Lol I thought so... I'll still give you a medal:) @Vocaloid
