 Question 526726: The length of a rectangle is 8 in. more than its width. The perimeter of the rectangle is 24 in. What are the width and length of the rectangle?Answer by Maths68(1474)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Perimeter = p=24 inches Length = l=w+8 Width = w=? Length = l=? 2 length + 2 width = Perimeter of rectangle 2l+2w=p 2(w+8)+2w=24 2w+16+2w=24 4w=24-16 4w=8 w=8/4 w=2 inches Width = w= 2 inches Length = l= w+8= 2+8=10 inches
