*QUESTION: The perimeter of a rectangle is 46 feet the width is 3 feet less than twice the length. What is the length?*

Perimeter = 2(L + W) = 46 (The perimeter is 46 feet )

W = 2L - 3 (the width is 3 feet less than twice the length)

Substituting for W,

2(L + 2L - 3) = 46

3L - 3 = 23

3L = 26

L = 8 2/3 ft

**L = 8ft 8 inch**
