    Answer:

    Length: 40  Width: 76

    Step-by-step explanation:

    W is width, and L is length.

    We know that the length is 36 less than the width, so L = w – 36.  Two times the width plus two times the length equals the perimeter, so set up the equation for the perimeter as:

    232 = 2w + 2(w-36)

    Now solve for w:

    232 = 2w + 2w – 72

    304 = 4w

    w = 76

    we now know that the width is 76, so solve for the length:

    L= 76-36

    L = 40
