Answer:length=10

width=8

Step-by-step explanation:(36-2-2)/4=8 8 is the width8=2 is 10 10 lengthAnswerPerimeter of rectangle, P = 2L + 2W

P = 36ft

Width, W

Length, L = W + 2ft

Perimeter of rectangle, P = 2L + 2W

Given; P = 36ft

36ft = 2W + 2(W + 2ft)

36ft = 2W + 2W + 4ft

32ft = 4W

8ft = W

L = W + 2ft

L = 8ft + 2ft

L = 10ft
