Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:Length = 32 feetWidth = 12 feetStep-by-step explanation:The length of a rectangle is eight more than twice its width.The perimeter is 88 feet.Let's say the width (w) is x feetThe length (l) will be 2x + 8Perimeter of a rectangle = 2l + 2wSo 2(2x + 8) + 2x = 884x + 16 + 2x = 886x + 16 = 886x = 88 - 166x = 72x = 12So the width is 12 feet.The length is 2(12) + 8 = 32 feet
