Found 2 solutions by zoomkaboom4, MathTherapy:Answer by zoomkaboom4(62)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!l= 2w w= w Therefore, 2(2w+w)=720 4w + 2w = 6w 720/6 = 120 W = 120ft. L = 240ft. Answer by MathTherapy(1817)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!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.
