wite the system of equations which represents the situation where the perimeter of a lot is 720 feet. the length is twice the width.
With W being the width, and L being the length, one equation is: L = 2W
The other equation is: 2L + 2W = 720 ------- L + W = 360
The system of equations is therefore:
You can then solve the system to determine the length and the width, if you so wish.
