Question #19657

A rectangular floor has a perimeter of 54 feet. If the length is 3 more than the width, what are the dimensions of the floor?

Expert's answer

P=54=2(w+l)

Let x feet - width then x+3 - length

P=2(x+3+x)=4x+6=54

x=12 feet

Width 12 feet, length 15 feet

Let x feet - width then x+3 - length

P=2(x+3+x)=4x+6=54

x=12 feet

Width 12 feet, length 15 feet
