The area of a rectangle is

The perimeter of a rectangle is

So we know the area is 240.

Using the area equation we get:

Also we know the perimeter is 62.

Utilizing the perimeter equation we get:

So we have the system:

The dimension are l and w. Solve for both using any methods you've learned about systems. :D - July 31st 2007, 03:20 PMtopsquark
