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

by appying 2l+2w

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.

Multiply length by width

You multiply the length by 2 (because there are two sides of the rectangle that have that measure). You then subtract that number from the perimeter. The number you will be left with is twice the width, so you divide that by two and you get the width of the rectangle.

Perimeter = 2*(L + W).

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.

If the length of a rectangle is twice its width and it has a perimeter of 48, then the rectangle is 16 in length and 8 in width.

If the shape is a rectangle, then Perimeter = 2(Length + Width) So Width = Perimeter/2 - Length

The length of the rectangle is 18cm. The width of the rectangle is 9cm.

Multiply length by width

The length of a rectangle is twice its width. If the perimeter of the rectangle is , find its area.

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