The length of a rectangle is 2 inches more than twice its width. If the perimeter of the rectangle is 34 inches, find the dimensions of the rectangle Let the width of the rectangle = w = x inch the length of the rectangle = l = 2x+2 inch perimeter of the rectangle = p = 34 inch p = 2(l+w) 34 = 2(2x+2+x) 34/2 = 3x+2 17-2 = 3x 15 = 3x x = 15/3 = 5 width = 5 inch length = 2*5+2 = 10+2 = 12 inch
