I know that the perimeter of a rectangle is p=2L + 2W but I am not sure how to work out this problem.Found 3 solutions by richwmiller, stanbon, checkley77:Answer by richwmiller(9143)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!you have p=2(W+L) but we are using x for w p=2(x+L) we are also told that p= 6x+6 6x+6=2(x+L) 6x+6=2x+2L 4x+6=2L 2x+3=L Answer by stanbon(57424)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The perimeter of a rectangular backyard is 6x + 6 yards. If the width is x yards, find a binomial that represents the length. ---- Perimeter = 2(W + L) --- 6x+6 = 2(x + L) Divide both sides by 2 to get: 3x+3 = x+L --- Length = 2x+3 ================== Cheers, Stan H. ================== Answer by checkley77(12569)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!2L+2W=PERIMETER. W=X 2L+2X=6X+6 2L=6X-2X+6 2L=4X+6 L=(4X+6)/2 L=(2X+3) ANS. FOR THE LENGTH.
