What is the length of the longer side of the slab?Answer by friesr(113)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Perimeter is 2L + 2W -- Area = LW -- 2l + 2w = 92 lw=465 w = 465/l sub 465/L 2L + 2(465/l) = 92 Give it a go from there... Once you get L, you can bring it back in for w. Goodluck.
