Today in class, we were given a worksheet for homework. On one side, there are eight geometry questions. Here are the first four of these questions:

1. The length of a rectangle is 3 times the width. The perimeter id 96cm. Find the width and length.

2. The length of a rectangle is 5m greater than the width. The perimeter is 150m. Find the width and length.

3. The width of a rectangle is 12 cm less than the length. The perimeter is 156cm. Find the width and length.

4. The length of a rectangle is 2cm less than 7 times the width. The perimeter is 60cm. Find the width and length.

BUT WAIT!!

Before you attempt to solve these questions, take a look at the slide show beneath. It tells you 7 Steps to Solving the questions. It should make solving easier for you.

And now back to the questions.

1. The length of a rectangle is 3 times the width. The perimeter id 96cm. Find the width and length.

2. The length of a rectangle is 5m greater than the width. The perimeter is 150m. Find the width and length.

3. The width of a rectangle is 12 cm less than the length. The perimeter is 156cm. Find the width and length.

4. The length of a rectangle is 2cm less than 7 times the width. The perimeter is 60cm. Find the width and length.
