Question The length of a rectangular field is 9m longer than its width, if the perimeter of the field is 270m find its width.

Answer: 63 meters ================================================== Work Shown: width = w length = w+9 perimeter = 2*(length + width) P = 2(w+9+w) P = 2(2w+9) P = 4w+18 4w+18 = P 4w+18 = 270 4w = 270 – 18 4w = 252 w = 252/4 w = 63 meters is the width w+9 = 63+9 = 72 meters is the length Check: perimeter = 2*(length + width) perimeter = 2*(72 + 63) perimeter = 2*(135) perimeter = 270 The answer is confirmed.
