Sum

The length of a rectangle is twice its width. If its perimeter is 54 cm; find its length.

Solution

Let width of the rectangle = x cm

Length of the rectangle = 2x cm

Perimeter of the rectangle = 2 [Length + Width] = 2 [2x + x] = 2 x 3x = 6x cm

Given perimeter = 54 cm

6x = 54

⇒ x = 9

Length = 2x = 2 x 9 = 18 cm
