5 feet

Half perimeter = 109. Subtract 87 and half the answer 22/2 = 11, this is the width. Add on the 87 giving 98, this is the length.

I think you mean the width is 6. The answer depends entirely on what the length of the rectangle is. For example, if it is a square, so that the length and width are both 6, the answer is 24. I the length is 10, the perimeter is 32. In general, just add the width (6) to the length and double the sum to get the perimeter.

That would depend on the length of the rectangle which has not been given but the area of a rectangle is length times width

50 cm2
