Q:
# The length of a rectangle is 5 inches less than twice it’s width. If the rectangle has a perimeter of 80 inches, find the length and the width.

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer: Length = 25 Inches, Breadth = 15 InchesStep-by-step explanation:Let the length of the rectangle be X inches and breadth of the rectangle be Y Inches .So, according to question,X = 2Y - 5.Now, Perimeter of rectangle will be 2(X + Y) Inches,Which is given to be 80 Inches.Thus, X + Y = 40 2Y - 5 + Y = 40 3Y = 45 Y = 15 InchesX = 2(15) - 5 = 25 = 25 Inches.So, Length = 25 Inches, Breadth = 15 Inches
