The length of a rectangle is 2 m more than twice its width. Find the length and width of the rectangle, if its perimeter is 28 m.

Let the width of the rectangle = W The length of the rectangle = 2W + 2

2W + 2[2W + 2] = 28 2W + 4W + 4 = 28 6W = 28 - 4 =24

W = 24 / 6 = 4 m - width of the rectangle 4 x 2 + 2 = 10 m - length of the rectangle.
