If the perimeter is 48 If the length is twic the width what is the length of rectangle?

perimeter = (2*length) + (2*width) length = 2*width so perimeter = (2*2*width) + 2*width = 6*width perimeter = 48 so you can figure out the width and length


What is one different way to to find the perimeter of a rectangle?

Length + length + width + width = perimeter. Length + width x 2 = perimeter


How do you find the length of a rectangle if the perimeter is 40 and the width is 2inches?

perimeter = 2 x (length + width) ⇒ length + width = perimeter ÷ 2 ⇒ length = (perimeter ÷ 2) - width So to find the length of the given rectangle, subtract the width from half the perimeter is how to do it. IF you meant "What is the length..." then: length = perimeter ÷ 2 - width = 40 ÷ 2 - 2 in = 20 - 2 in = 18 in


How do you get the area if you have the width and the perimeter?

Perimeter = 2 lengths + 2 widths 1/2 perimeter = length + width Length = 1/2 perimeter - width Area = length x width That's (1/2 perimeter - width) x (width) .


How do you find width when you have perimeter and length?

width = (perimeter-2*length)/2


How do you find the width of a rectangle if you know the perimeter and the length?

Perimeter = 2 * width + 2 * length, so rearranging --> width = (Perimeter / 2) - length


What can be concluded about a rectangles width if the ratio of length to perimeter is 1 to 3?

The width is half the length: The perimeter is twice the length plus twice the width. If the perimeter is 3 times the length, twice the width must be the length.


How can you calculate the length of a rectangle if the perimeter and the width are given?

Because the perimeter is lenght + length +width +width, you do perimeter - double the width, and then halve the remaining number. that should give you the length.


What is an expression for the perimeter of a rectangle that has a length which is seven times its width?

Perimeter = length + length + width + width Let "w" = width, then "7w" must equal the length (because it's 7 times the width) 7w + 7w + w + w = perimeter 16w = perimeter


How does perimeter relate to area?

The perimeter is equal to length + length + width + width while area is length x width. Both measurements are found by using width and length.


What measurements do you need to find the area and perimeter of a rectangle how would you use these measurements to find the area and perimeter of a rectangle?

you need length and width length multiply width = area length + length + width + width = perimeter


How do you find the perimeter of yards?

The perimeter is the total distance around - width + width+ length + length.


What is a perimeter of a recangular?

Perimeter is Length + width x 2 or Length + length + width + width. This is perimeter for any shape including a rectangle. Perimeter of a rectangle is all sides added together for a rectangle.


What is an expression for the perimeter of a rectangle that has a length which is three times its width?

call width x so length is 3x perimeter is (2*length)+(2*width) so perimeter is 8x


What is the formula to find the perimeter of a re ctangle?

In the simplified format:Perimeter of a rectangle = (Length) + (Width) + (Length) + (Width)In the advanced format:Perimeter of a rectangle = 2 x (Length + Width)


What are the dimensions of a table if the perimeter is 36 and the length is 5 times the width?

perimeter = length + length + width + width = 2*length + 2*width = 36 length = 5*width 2*(5*width) + 2*width = 36 12*width = 36 width = 3 length = 15


When people say perimeter is the length times width do they mean the whole shape?

If people say that "perimeter is the length times width" stop listening to them. They don't know what they are talking about.Length times width is the area, not the perimeter. For a square or rectangle, the perimeter is double the sum of the length and the width.

What is the rule for the perimeter of a rectangle?

The perimeter of a rectangle is found by the following formula: (Length x 2) + (Width x 2) or Length + Length + Width + Width.


How do you find the perimeter of a rectangle if you have the length and the area?

Area = Length*Width so Width = Area/Length. Therefore the Width can be calculated. Then, perimeter = 2*(Length + Width) and everything on the right hand side of the equation is known so the perimeter can be calculated.


How do you find the area and perimeter of a rectangle?

Use the following formulae: Area = length x width Perimeter = 2 x length plus 2 x width, or length + length + width + width


How do you find the length and width if you know the perimeter?

Length + width = half of perimeter, so you need more information...


How do you determine length if given the perimeter and width?

multiply the width by 2 and then subtract that to the perimeter then divide the answer by 2 to get the length


What is the formula to find the length of a rectangle when the perimeter and width is already given?

Length = (Perimeter - twice width) / 2


The length of a rectangle is twice the width width the perimeter is 48 in find the dimensions of the rectangle?
