Laura bends a piece of wire 72 in. long into the shape of a rectangle that is three times as long as it is wide. What are the dimensions of the rectangle? Please show me the work also. Thank you so much.This question is from textbook College Geometry Musser, Trimpe, and Maurer Answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(15746)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!bend a piece of wire 72 in. long into the shape of a rectangle that is three times as long as it is wide. What are the dimensions of the rectangle? : Let x = the width (W) then 3x = length (L) : 72" will be the perimeter of the rectangle: 2L + 2W = 72 then 2(3x) + 2x = 72 : 6x + 2x = 72 : 8x = 72 x = x = 9" is the width then 2(9) = 27 is the length : : Check solution: 2(27) + 2(9) =
