1. Given that,

→ Length is 48 inches.

→ Width is 28 inches.

We have to find,

The perimeter of the tabletop.

The formula we use,

→ P = 2(L) + 2(W)

Then find the perimeter of the tabletop,

→ 2(L) + 2(W)

→ (2 × 48) + (2 × 28)

→ 96 + 56

→ 152 inches

Thus, the perimeter is 152 inches.

152 inches

Step-by-step explanation:

P = 2 l + 2 w,

We know the length is 48 and width is 28

P = 2 *48 + 2 *28

P = 96+56

P =152
