The difference between the length and the width is 8 feet. Determine the rectangle’s lengthAnswer by papugai(18)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let the width be x. Then the length is 3x, since it is 3 times longer. The diference between the length and the width is 8. Then let 3x-x=8 2x=8 x=4 So the width is 4. The length is 3 times longer, so 3*4=12. That makes the length equal 12. Good luck!!
