 Question 93266: I am having trouble with this word problem. Find an expression that represents its perimeter. Length Width How do I solve this problem? Please help me.Found 2 solutions by checkley75, ankor@dixie-net.com:Answer by checkley75(3666)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!perimeter=2L+2W P=2[(2X+1/5)]+2[4/(3X+1)] P=(4X+2)/5+8/(3X+1) P=[(4X+2)(3X+1)+8*5]/5(3X+1) P=(12X^2+10X+2+40)/15X+5 P=2(6X^2+5X+20)/5(3X+1) ANSWER. Answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(15638)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Find an expression that represents its perimeter. (2x+1)/(5) Length (4)/(3x+1) Width : We know that perimeter = 2L + 2W, therefore we have: + : Multiplying what's inside the brackets: + : Arrange over a single common denominator and we have: = = = : That's about all you can do with it: : Could you follow what we did here? Any questions?
