16 feet.

Length + width = half of perimeter so width = p/2 - length ie (22-12) 10 yards.

measure the length and the width

Change the perimeter to feet and let the width be x. Perimeter = 2(22+x) = 76 feet 44+2x = 76 2x = 76-44 2x = 32 x = 16 So the width is 16 feet and the length is 22 feet Check: 16+16+22+22 = 76 feet

The house is 30 ft wide. Perimeter of a rectanglw is 2L + 2W. solved: P = 2L + 2W (convert P to ft and sub known values) 132 = (2*36) + 2W (simplify) 132 = 72 + 2W (subtract 72 from each side of the equation) 60 = 2W (divide both sides of the equation by 2 to find the width) 30 = W

The perimeter of the house must be very large because a house is really big.

First find the length of this very very small house and let the length be x: Perimeter = 2(x+25) = 122 inches 2x+50 = 122 2x = 122-50 2x = 72 x = 36 So the length = 36 inches Area = 36*25 = 900 square inches
