The length of a rectangle is 3 feet less than 4 times its width.  If the perimeter of the rectangle is 64 feet, what are the dimensions of the rectangle?


Expert Answer

Step 1

Given that length of the rectangle is 3 feet less than 4 times its width and the perimeter of the rectangle is 64 feet.

Step 2

Obtain the dimension of the rectangle as follows,

Let consider the width of the rectangle be x.

Then the length of the rectangle will be L=4x-3                               …… (1).

The perimeter of the rectangle is given by the formula P=2L+2W.

So, the perimeter of rectangle is as follows.


Step 3

Rearrange the above equation and solv...
