The length of a rectangle is twice its width and its perimeter is 42 cm. If the width of the rectangle is x cm, write an expression for the perimeter of the rectangle in terms of x.

If the width is x, the length is twice this  = 2x

 

And

 

Perimeter = 2 (W + L)      so

 

Perimeter =  2 ( x + 2x)

 

Perimeter  = 2 (3x)

 

Perimeter  = 6x

 

42  =  2 ( x + 2x )

 

42  = 2 ( 3x)  

 

42  =  6x
