 Question 69613: Please help me with this problem I'm sure there's a simple solution to solving it, but my book only provides the answer, not the actual explanation of how to solve it. First, the question is, find the perimeter of rectangle PQRS. The top length side of the rectangle (PQ) is 11 inches. The bottom length side (SR) is (7x-3) inches. The right width side (QR) is (3x-3) inches. The left width side (PS) is unknown. I have already solved for x with this equation 7x-3=11 which =2, but when I insert 2 into the equation 3x-3 and add all the sides to find the perimeter of the rectangle it doesn't match the answer in the book.
