    Answer:

    Width = 25

    Length = 58

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let the width = w

    Length = 2w + 8

    2(w + 2w + 8) = 166               Combine terms in the brackets

    2(3w + 8) = 166                      Divide both sides by 2

    (3w + 8) = 83                          Subtract 8 from both sides

    3w = 83 – 8

    3w = 75                                  Divide by 3

    w = 25

    L = 2*25 + 8                           Find the Length

    L = 50 + 8 = 58
