Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0perimeter of rectangle is : P = 2L + 2W start subbing in : P = 64 L = 20 W = 11 if it comes out correct, then it can be a solution if it comes out incorrect, then it cannot

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, the rectangle cannot have x = 20 and y = 11 because x + y ≠ 64 No, the rectangle cannot have x = 20 and y = 11 because x + y ≠ 32 Yes, the rectangle can have x = 20 and y = 11 because x + y is less than 64 Yes, the rectangle can have x = 20 and y = 11 because x + y is less than 32

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok...lets sub P = 2L + 2W 64 = 2(20) + 2(11) 64 = 40 + 22 64 = 62....it cannot be true

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It doesn't make much sense....x and y do not have to equal 64.....2x + 2y have to equal 64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.064 = 2x + 2(11) 64 = 2x + 22 64  22 = 2x 42 = 2x 21 = x the width would have to be 21 for this to be true so I guess it is A

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3to match the answer choices p = 64 = 2(x + y) 32 = x + y when x = 20 and y = 11 x + y not = 31 so B

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3correction not = 32 so B

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thanks triciaal.....my mind was going blank....it is B, I see that now....because x + y would not have to equal 64 for it to be true

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x + y has to equal 32 for it to be correct....and if you do 20 + 11...that is 31, so it is not true

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its because x+y=31 not 32
