The perimeter of a rectangle of width 6 feet is 10 yards. In square feet, what is the area of the rectangle?

10 yards = 30 ft

 

So....

 

2(W + L)   = Perimeter

 

2(6 + L)  = 30      divide both sides by 2

 

 

6 + L  = 15         subtract 6 from both sides

 

L = 9

 

And Area =  W * L  =  6 * 9   =   54 square feet
