The answer is a. 16in

If you add 12 that will give you 24.

Then you subtract 24 from 56 which give you 32.

Then you would divide 32 by 2

And that will give you 16

Perimeter = 2 · width + 2· lenght

W = L - 3

18 = 2 · ( L - 3) + 2 · L

18 = 2 L - 6 + 2 L

18 + 6 = 4 L

24 = 4 L

L = 24 : 4 = 6 m

W = 6 - 3 =**3 m**

The width is 3 m.

W = L - 3

18 = 2 · ( L - 3) + 2 · L

18 = 2 L - 6 + 2 L

18 + 6 = 4 L

24 = 4 L

L = 24 : 4 = 6 m

W = 6 - 3 =

The width is 3 m.

2 a + b = 15.7

Since the sides are equal length, the equation is:

**2 · 6.3 + b = 15.7**

We can solve it:

12.6 + b = 15.7

b = 15.7 - 12.6

**b = 3.1 cm**

Since the sides are equal length, the equation is:

We can solve it:

12.6 + b = 15.7

b = 15.7 - 12.6

In a rectangular figure, the opposite sides should be equal. If one of the sides measures 8 inches, the side opposite to this should also be 8 inches. We let x be the other dimension. The perimeter (P) is equal to,

P = 2 x 8 + 2x

Substituting the known values,

40 in = 16 + 2x

Solving for x gives an answer of 12 in. Thus, the other dimension is 12 inches.

P = 2 x 8 + 2x

Substituting the known values,

40 in = 16 + 2x

Solving for x gives an answer of 12 in. Thus, the other dimension is 12 inches.

QUESTION POSTED AT 24/01/2020 - 03:47 AM

To minimize the perimeter you should always have a square.

sqrt(289) = 17

The dimensions should be 17 X 17

To see , try starting at length 1, and gradually increase the length.

The height decreases at a faster rate than the length increases, up until you reach a square.

Or if you want to use algebra, Say the width is 17-x

Then the length is 289/(17-x)

Now, this is bigger than 17+x, as shown here:

289/(17-x) > 17+x

289 > 289 - x^2

which is true.

so the perimeter would be bigger than 2 * (17- x + 17 + x) = 2 * (2 * 17) = 4 * 17

Again, the dimensions should be a square. 17 X 17.

**Answer:**

feet.

**Step-by-step explanation:**

We have been given that an equilateral triangle has a perimeter of feet. We are asked to find the length of each side of the triangle.

Since we know that all sides of an equilateral triangle are of equal measure and the perimeter of an equilateral triangle is three times its each side length.

To find the length of each side of our given triangle, we will divide our given perimeter by 3.

**Therefore, the length of each side of our given triangle is feet.**

The diagonal of a square is obtained by using Pythagorean theorem. Letting x be the side of the square,

x² + x² = 14²

Solving x from the equation gives x a value of approximately 9.899 m. The perimeter of a square is four times the length of its side. Thus, the perimeter of the square is approximately 39.60 meters.
