# A rectangle has an area of 144.8 square feet. Its length is 18.1 feet. What is the width of the rectangle?

Width is 8 feet

#### Explanation:

Because #A = L * W@ and we know the Area and the Length we can set up the equation:

$144.8 = 18.1 \cdot W$

We can then solve for $W$

$W = \frac{144.8}{18.1}$

$W = 8$
