 Question 107475: The length of a field is equal to 120m more than its width. If the pèrimètre (distance around) equals 560 m, find dimensions of this camp.Answer by alisttutors(8)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!1) L=120m+W 2) 2L+2W=560m Simplify equation 2: 2(L+W)=560m 2) L+W=280m Substitute equation 1 into equation 2: (120m+W)+ W=280m 2W=280m-120m * W=80m Substitute W: L+80m=280m * L=200m check: 2(200m)+ 2(80m)=?560 yes, that checks
