Let's denote the width of the basketball court as ( w ) meters. Since the length is twice as long as the width, we can express the length as ( 2w ) meters.

Given that the perimeter of the court is 78 meters, we can set up an equation for the perimeter:

[ 2(w + 2w) = 78 ]

Now, solve for ( w ):

[ 2(3w) = 78 ] [ 6w = 78 ] [ w = \frac{78}{6} ] [ w = 13 ]

So, the width of the basketball court is 13 meters.

Now, we can find the length:

[ \text{Length} = 2w = 2 \times 13 = 26 ]

Therefore, the length of the basketball court is 26 meters.

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.
