# how do you find length when you are given perimeter and width? area?

the length of what???????

wow

You divide the perimeter by the width!Somebody helped me with this question to.

## I apologize for the confusion. To find the length when you are given the perimeter and width, you need to have a specific shape or object in mind. If you are referring to a rectangle, you can use the formula:

Perimeter = 2(length + width)

Given the perimeter and width, you can rearrange the formula to solve for the length:

Perimeter = 2(length + width)

Divide both sides by 2:

Perimeter/2 = length + width

Subtract the width from both sides:

Length = Perimeter/2 - width

This equation will give you the length of the rectangle.

Now, if you are given the area instead of the perimeter, the formula for the area of a rectangle is:

Area = length * width

Given the area and width, you can rearrange the formula to solve for the length:

Area = length * width

Divide both sides by the width:

Area/width = length

This equation will give you the length of the rectangle.

Lastly, you mentioned "in. = 4yd." In this case, it seems like units are not consistent. Inches and yards are different units of measurement. To solve the problem accurately, it's important to have consistent units.
