The length of a rectangle is two times its width. The perimeter of the rectangle is 180 cm. Find the dimensions of the rectangle.

Answer :

Let x be the width of the rectangle. Then, length of the rectangle will be 2x.

Perimeter of a rectangle = 2[Length + Width]

According to the question.

2 (x + 2x) = 180

2 (3x) = 180

6x = 180

[dividing both sides by 6]

x = 30

Hence, width of the rectangle is 30cm and length of the rectangle is 2 × 30 i.e. 60xm.
