Let length be n

width =n-6

perimeter of a rectangle=2{(n-6)+n}=68

2n-12+2n=68

4n=80

n=20

therefore length =20

therefore width=2-6=14

i hope this helped u....

Then, the length is x+6.

Then, perimeter=2(l+b)

68=2(x+x+6)

34=2x+6

34=2(x+3)

17=x+3

Therefore, x=14.

Then, x+6=20.

Therefore, the length is 20; and, the width is 14.

Thank you.

Hope this will help you.
