A rectangle's length is 3 times more than twice its width. If the perimeter of the rectangle is 60 feet. What is the length of the rectangle

Correct answer:

l =  22.5 ft

Step-by-step explanation:

3w=l 60=2l+2w  60=2 l+2 l/3  8l=180  l=452=22.5   Verifying Solution:  w=l/3=22.5/3=152=7.5 ft l=p=2 (l+w)=2 (22.5+7.5)=60 ft=22.5 ft
