L=4*6=24 ANS. PROOF: 6*24=144 144=144 Answer by richwmiller(9135)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The length of a rectangle is 4 times the width. The area 144in squared. find the length and width of the rectangle. let w = width l=length l=4w so we have length= 4w and width =w area equals length times width 144 sq in =4w*w 144=4w^2 36=w^2 6=w width=6 inches length=4w=24 inches
