Let ( w ) represent the width of the rectangle. Then the length of the rectangle is ( w + 4 ). The formula for the perimeter of a rectangle is ( P = 2(w + l) ), where ( P ) is the perimeter, ( w ) is the width, and ( l ) is the length. Substitute the given values into the formula and solve for ( w ). Once ( w ) is found, calculate the length ( l = w + 4 ). Finally, plug in the values for ( w ) and ( l ) to confirm they satisfy the condition that the perimeter is 34 inches.

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.
