Draw a rectangle that meets both of the following conditions and label the rectangle's length and width?

draw a rectangle that meets bot of the following conditions and label the rectangle's length and width. The perimeter of the rectangle is 36 units and the length of the rectangle is 5 times its width.

Answer 1

The width is 3 and the length is 15.

The first thing we can use is the perimeter. The perimeter of any shape is the same as all the sides added together. Let's look at a picture to help:


#l="length"#
#w="width"#

So the perimeter is the same as saying:
#p=l+w+l+w#
#p=2l+2w#

The problem actually already told us what the #"perimeter"# was!
#p=36#
And it told us that the length of the rectangle is 5 times its width OR:
#l=5w#

Let's plug the values of #l# and #p# into the first equation:
#p=2l+2w#
#(36)=2(5w)+2w#
#36=10w+2w#
#36=12w#
#3=w#

Now that we know that #w=3#, let's plug it into this equation, since it's simpler to solve (there's no need for math to be hard ;D)
#l=5w#
#l=5(3)#
#l=15#

So the #"width" = 3# and the #"length" = 15#

Answer 2

To draw a rectangle that meets both conditions, we need to know the conditions first. Please provide the conditions, and I'll be happy to draw the rectangle and label its length and width accordingly.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
