Question the perimeter of a rectangular painting is 304 CM. If the width of the paint is 63 cm what is the length

Answer: The PERIMETER P is the distance around the rectangle. Let’s call the width of the rectangle W and the length of the rectangle L. As you go around the edge there two equal lengths and two equal widths. The formula for the perimeter of a rectangle is P=2*L+2*W. P=2L%2B2W Substitute 290 for P and 62 for the width. 290=2L%2B2%2862%29 Solve for L. 290=2L%2B2%2862%29 290=2L%2B124 290-124=2L 2L=166 L=83 The equation L=83 means that the length is 83 cm. CHECK your work. 2(62)+2(83) = 124+166 = 290cm. The length of the rectangle is 83cm. Log in to Reply

Answer:The PERIMETER P is the distance around the rectangle.

Let’s call the width of the rectangle W and the length of the rectangle L.

As you go around the edge there two equal lengths and two equal widths.

The formula for the perimeter of a rectangle is P=2*L+2*W.

P=2L%2B2W

Substitute 290 for P and 62 for the width.

290=2L%2B2%2862%29

Solve for L.

290=2L%2B2%2862%29

290=2L%2B124

290-124=2L

2L=166

L=83

The equation L=83 means that the length is 83 cm.

CHECK your work.

2(62)+2(83) = 124+166 = 290cm.

The length of the rectangle is 83cm.
