Excellent!
Incorrect
A word problem can be translated into an equation for easier solving.Perimeter of a Rectangle
`P=2l+2w`Area of a Rectangle
`A=lw``(i)` Find the length and width of the land.Slot in the given values into the Perimeter Formula to form an equation`P=98``l=x+7``w=x``P` `=` `2l+2w` Perimeter Formula `98` `=` `2(x+7)+2(x)` Solve for `x``98` `=` `2(x+7)+2(x)` `98` `=` `2x+14+2x` `98` `=` `4x+14` `4x+14` `=` `98` `4x+14` `14` `=` `98` `14` Subtract `14` from both sides `4x` `=` `84` `4x``:4` `=` `84``:4` Divide both sides by `4` `x` `=` `21`m width of the land Solve for `x+7``x+7` `=` `21+7` Substitute `x` `=` `28`m length of the land `(ii)` Find the area of the land.Slot in the values from part `(i)` into the Area Formula`l=28`m`w=21`m`A` `=` `lw` Area Formula `=` `(28)(21)` `=` `588\text(m)^2` `(i)` length: `28`m, width: `21`m`(ii)` Area: `588\text(m)^2`
