Let x be the width of the rectangle. Then, 12 + x is the length of the rectangle. |dw:1447101106535:dw|

The perimeter is the sum of the lengths and widths of the rectangle. So, solve this equation for x. x + x + 12 + x + 12 + x = 42 Simplify that and solve for x. Post what you get, okay? @candice1997
