    let the width be x. then, by the problem, the length is 3x. now, what do we know about the perimeter? and what is the formula for the perimeter?

    Ok, Great, but check this out.

    6x+2x=176 but how do you get the length and then the width?

    what do you mean? length = 3x, and width = x. if you find x, then you can find what the length and width are, right?
