 Question 87999: The length of a rectangle is 2 in. more than twice its width. If the perimeter of the rectangle is 34in., find the dimensions of the rectangle.Answer by uma(370)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let the width be x cm Then length measures = 2x+2 The perimeter given to be 34 ==> 2[x+2x+2) = 34 ==> 2[3x+2] = 34 ==> 6x + 4 = 34 ==> 6x = 34 - 4 ==> 6x = 30 ==> x = 5 Thus the width = 5 in and length = 2(5)+2 = 10+2 = 12 in Good Luck!!!!
