Perimiter = 2(Length) + 2(Width)
Width=Length-9

118=2L+2(L-9)
118=2L+2L-18
118=4L-18
136=4L
34=L

W=L-9
W=34-9
W=25

P=2(34)+2(25)
P=118

That would be at 118 feet perimeter. Not sure what you mean by more than 118 feet. How much more? Might want to check your spelling too. "rectangler dog p***s"? hahahahaha
