 Question 597049: the perimeter of the rectangle is 50 write a linear equation in two variables, to find x when y is 20Answer by racoon(5)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!In a rectangle, there are two pairs of parallel lines. If we labelled a length of one pair of lines as x and the other length pair of lines as y, the equation will look like this; 2x + 2y = 50 Subtitutes y = 20 2x + 2(20) = 50 2x + 40 = 50 2x = 50 - 40 2x = 10 x = 10/2 x = 5
