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

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

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.
