 Question 335619: The length of a rectangle is 4 feet less than twice its width. find the dimensions if the permeter is 100 feet.Answer by kvlsravya(8)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let 'l' & 'w' be the length & width of the rectangle respectively. From the hypothesis, l = 2w - 4 Perimeter = 100 feet Perimeter of a rectangle = 2(l + b) Plugging in 'l' in the above formula, we get 2(2w - 4 + w) = 100 On solving for 'w', we get length of the rectangle(l) = 32 feet Width of the rectangle(w) = 18 feet
