The length of a rectangle is 14

meters more than the width. The perimeter of the rectangle is

264

meters.

What are the dimensions of the rectangle?

The Answer is 125 and 139.

The length is 73 m, and the width is 59 m.

Step-by-step explanation:

perimeter = 2 * length + 2 * width

Let the width = w

length = w + 14

width = w

perimeter = 2 * (w + 14) + 2 * w

perimeter = 2w + 28 + 2w

perimeter = 4w + 28

perimeter = 264

4w + 28 = 264

4w = 236

w = 59

length = w + 14 = 59 + 14 = 73

The length is 73 m, and the width is 59 m.
