 Question 628729: My question is how do you write a system of linear equations for this rectangle? If the perimeter of this rectangle is 42feet. The length is 7ft longer than the width. I am suppose to find the deminsions, and write a system of equations and solve. Let x be length and y be the length. 2x+2y= and the second equation x=y+ Then I need the length and what the width of the rectangle is. I would assume that I would add 42 twice, but from there I am not sure. Click here to see answer by meetkisai(17)
