    Im Stuch Help me...

    I need to find the value of y in a rectangle. The perimeter is 105m
    length which is across ways = 4y
    breadth which goes up is y

    Note that the length is longer than the breadth.

    How would i work this out ?

    Thanks

    perimiter is twice length plus twice width, so:

    105=8y+2y
