# The perimeter of a rectangle is 162 ft. The lenght is 3 more than twice the width. How do you find the dimensions of the rectangle?

##### 1 Answer

Width:

Length:

#### Explanation:

Let the length be

Let the width be

#l = 2w + 3#

#2(l+w) = 162#

#2w + 3 + w = 162/2#

#3w + 3 =81#

#3w = 78#

#w = "26 ft"#

This means that

#l = 2w + 3#

#l = 2(26) + 3#

#l = "55 ft"#
