The perimeter of a rectangular field is 330 yards.  

If the width of the field is 72 yards, what is its length?  

 

 

The perimeter is the Length + Width + Length + Width.  

You can also express this as 2L + 2W.  

 

So,                                P  =  2L + 2W  

 

                                  330  =  (2)(L) + (2)(72)  

 

                                  330  =  2L + 144  

 

                                  330 – 144  =  2L  

 

                                      2L  =  186  

 

                                        L  =  93
