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
