a seed company planted a floral mosaic of a national flag. the perimeter of the rectangular planting area is 420 feet. the length of the area is 110 feet longer than the width.

a.) write a system of equations to relate the length and width of the planting area

b.) use the system of equations to determine the length and width of the planting area

Answer:Length = 50 feetWidth = 160 feetExplanation:I’m assuming the flagpole is not included in this question.w=widthl=≤n>hThe length compared to the width is:w=l+110<– equation 1The formula for perimeter:P=2w+2l420=2w+2l<– equation 2Sub the first equation into the second.420=2(l+110)+2lNow you can solve forlalgebraically.420=2l+220+2l4l=200l=50Sub the found length into the first equation to find the length.w=(50)+110w=160Therefore the flag is 50 feet long and 160 feet wide.
