 Question 356640: the perimeter of a rectangular pool is 130 yards. 3 times the length is equal to 10 times the width. what is the length, width, and area of the pool? Answer by mananth(12270)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!let width be x 10W=3L L=10W/3 ... length = 10x/3 perimeter = 130 yards .. Perimeter = 2*(L+W) 2*(10x/3+x)=130 2*(13x/3)=130 13x/3 =65 13x= 195 x=15 yards the width length = 10x/3 =150/3 = 50 yards the length
