### The perimeter of a rectangle is 38mthe base is four more than two times the heightwhat is the height?

Assuming that this question should have read, "The perimeter of a rectangle is 38m. The base is four more than two times the height. What is the height?", the answer can be obtained as follows: The perimeter of a rectangle is the twice the sum of its base and height. Call the unknown height h. Then, from the problem statement, 2[h + (2h + 4)] = 38. Expanding and collecting like terms gives 6h = 30 or h = 5 m.
