Practice with this.

Let:

width = x

length = 3x+5

Perimeter= (2*width)+(2*height)

Knowing these, you could come up with an answer for the dimensions.

and 3x+5 is lenght

perimeter =810 meters

then the formula is

P=2(3x+5 )+ 2x

810=2(3x+5)+2x

810=6x+10+2x

810=8x+10

810-10 =8x

800=8x

800/8=8x/8

100=x

length=3x+5

length=3(100)+5

length=300+5

length=305

width=100
