# Find the value of L. Perimeter = 20. Width is 6. So what is L? On a square

QUESTION POSTED AT 05/12/2019 - 05:54 PM

Well first of all, that's not a square.  On a square, all 4 sides are
the same, and the length is the same distance as the width.  If the
width of a square is 6, and all four sides are the same, then the
perimeter is (4 x 6) = 24.

So the shape in your question may be a rectangle, but it's definitely
not a square one.

The perimeter is the distance an ant has to walk if you put him down
on one corner and he walks all the way around the shape until he gets
back to where he started from.
That's the perimeter.

If you set the ant down on the corner of a rectangle, then he walks the
length, then the width, the the length again, then the width again, and
he's back where he started.

That was 2 lengths and 2 widths ... the perimeter of every rectangle.

Take 2 widths away from the perimeter, and you have 2 lengths left.  OK ?

You said that the width of your rectangle is 6.  Two widths is 12.
Take the 2 widths away from the perimeter, and you're left with (20 - 12) = 8.
But that's 2 lengths !
So the length is half of 8  =  4 .

### Dpoiski2 Find the perimeter of a rectangle with l = 0.85 m and w = 0.4 m. A. 1.25 m B. 2.5 m C. 0.34 m D. 0.68 m Unsubscribe

For this question the answer is 2.5m (B)
You find this by: L=0.85m
W=0.4m

A rectangle had 4 sides (2 lengths and 2 widths)
So...
To find 1 length and 1 Width you do 0.85+0.4=1.25m
Now you want to find the other 2 sides (L and W)
You can do: the same method and add it to 1.25m OR...
You can do (I prefer this one): (0.85+0.4)x2=?
This is the same as 0.85+0.4=1.25
1.25x2=2.5m

### Find an equation that models a hyperbolic lens with a = 12 inches and foci that are 26 inches apart. Assume that the center of the hyperbola is the origin and the transverse axis is vertical.

The general form for a hyperbola with the center at the origin and a vertical transverse axis is:
y2/a2 - x2/b2 = 1

From the given:
a = 12

To get b, we use the given distance between the foci.Since it's 26,
c = 26/2 = 13

Using this defintion:
c2 = a2 + b2
b = sqrt(c2 - a2) = sqrt (13^2 - 12^2) = 5

The equation therefore is:
y2/13^2 - x2/5^2 = 1
or
y2/169 - x2/25 = 1

### The city wants to build a football field. Each wheelbarrow full of dirt covers an area of 10x squared. Determine how many wheelbarrows full of dirt they need for the field below. One side of the rectangle is just 5x squared. The other side is 10x square plus 90x.

As this is a unitless problem, let us try to deal with it as if it does have units. Since we are already given the length and width of a rectangle, we can solve for the area by multiplying. After getting the area, we divide this by the area a wheelbarrow can cover to obtain the expression for how many wheelbarrows we need.

Rectangle length = 10x^2 + 90x
Rectangle width = 5x^2
Rectangle area = length * width = 5x^2(10x^2 + 90x)

Rectangle area = 50x^4 + 450x^2

Dividing:

_5x^2_+_45____10x^2|50x^4 + 450x^2           50x^4          --------                        450x^2                        450x^2                         ---------                                  0

Therefore, the expression for how many wheelbarrows are to be used is 5x^2 + 45 wheelbarrows.

### Which equation can be used to find the perimeter of a regular octagon with sides of length 12 m? A. P = 8 + 12 B. P = 8(12) C. P = 12 ÷ 8 D. P = 2(8) + 2(12)

The basic definition of a perimeter is the boundary line of an object. For shapes and figures, this is basically the sum of the outermost sides that define the object. Since an octagon has eight sides, with each side measuring 12m, the perimeter can be obtained by multiplying 12 m by 8 sides, or in equation form:

P = 8(12)

Among the choices, this is letter B.

Option (c) 7.6 cm is the correct answer

Step-by-step explanation:

Three sides of a quadrilateral measure 2.5 cm, 1.8 cm, and 9 cm.

Perimeter of the quadrilateral  is 29.9 cm

Then we have to find the length of 4th side.

Since perimeter of any quadrilateral = sum of all four sides

so by using this formula

20.9 = 13.3 + x

x = 20.9 - 13.3

x = 7.6 cm

Option (c) 7.6 cm is the correct answer

The number of female students was half the number of male students. If the total number of people who went on the trip is 82, find the numbers of male students and female students.

In equation, let x be the number of male students
a be the number of adults
y be the number of female students.
x= 7a+1
a= x/7 -1
y= x/2 or (7a + 1)/ 2

a + b = 82, let b be the number of students.
a + (x + y) = 82
a + [7a+1 + (7a+1)/2] = 82
a + [{2(7a+1) + 7a+1} / 2] = 82
a + [(14a +2 + 7a +1) / 2] = 82
a + [(21a + 3) / 2] = 82
(2a+ 21a + 3) / 2 = 82
