1. The length of a rectangle is 3 more than twice it’s width. The perimeter is 48 feet

I suppose you want to find the dimensions???......if so

2 ( L + W) = Perimeter and L = 2W + 3

So

2 [ 2W + 3 + W ] = 48 divide both sides by 2 and simplify

3W + 3 = 24 subtract 3 from both sides

3W = 21 divide both sides by 3

W = 7 and L = 2(7) + 3 = 17

P.S.....if you wanted the area......just multiply L x W

2. (Fifteen more than four times a number) is (6 more than five times the number.) Use "n" for the number

(A) = (B)

So....

(A) = (B)

4n + 15 = 5n + 6 subtract 4N, 6 from both sides

9 = n

3. Martha and Sally had lunch together on Tuesday. Sally paid $2 more than Martha. The total bill was $5.64

P = what Martha paid

P + 2 = what Sally paid

So

P + (P + 2) = 5.64

Can you take it from here ????

x = men on committee

x+6 = women on committee

x + x+6 = 30

2x = 24

x = men = 12 women = 18
