In this problem, you have 2 equations with 2 unknowns. That means you can solve for the unknowns:
Since you are given the perimeter, you can derive your first equation from that:
You are also given the fact that the length is 10 yards more than the width. This forms the basis of your second equation:
Now that you have established the 2 equations, you are ready to go. First, plug in your expression for L from Equation #2 into Equation #1 and solve for W:
Now, you can plug this value of W into Equation #2 and get L:
