A rectangle has a perimeter of 58 inches. The length is one more than three times the width 13.) define variables 14.) write a system of equations that show the two distinct relationships between the length and width 15.) explain why you could not solve this problem/narrow down the actual length and width of this rectangle unless you knew the second relationship - that fact that the length was one more than three times the width

13.) l=length w=width p=perimeter 14.) p=2l+2w l=1+3w 15.) 58 in= 2 (1+3w) +2w 58= 2+8w 8w= 56 w=7 in l=1+3 (7) l=22in
