HELP!!!Answer by amoresroy(333)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The length of a rectangle is 2 meters less than three times the width. What is the maximum integer value of the length if the perimeter is less than 43 meters? Let w = the width of rectangle L = 3w-2 Perimeter = 2(w+L) 43 = 2(w + 3w-2) 43 = 2(4w-2) 43 = 8w - 4 8w = 47 w = 47/8 L = 3(47/8) - 2 L = 15.6 should be 15 The maximum integer value of the length is 15 meters if the perimeter is less than 43 meters.
