# The length of a picture frame is 3 in. greater than the width. The perimeter is less than 52 in. How do you find the dimensions of the frame?

Width is less than 11.5 inches and the length is less than 14.5 inches

#### Explanation:

if the width is $a$ then the length is $a + 3$

So the perimeter is $a + 3 + a + a + 3 + a < 52$

$4 a + 6 < 52$

$4 a < 46$

$a < 11.5$
