1 HFCC Math Lab Beginning Algebra - 15 PERIMETER WORD PROBLEMS The perimeter of a plane geometric figure is the sum of the lengths of its sides. In this handout, we will deal with perimeter problems involving rectangles, squares, and triangles. We will use L and W to denote the length and width, respectively, of a rectangle; we'll use S to represent the length of a side of a square; and we'll use A, B, and C to represent the lengths of the three sides of a triangle. Formulas for the perimeter P of each are shown below. Rectangle Square Triangle W S B C L S A P= 2W + 2L P= 4S P= A+ B+ C Use the following procedure to set up perimeter problems: 1. Read the problem carefully several times. 2. Draw a figure to help visualize the problem. 3. Identify the unknown measures. 4. Represent one of the unknown measures by a suitable letter, such as. Then represent the other unknown measures in terms of. 5. Translate the problem into a linear equation using the appropriate perimeter formula or formulas. 6. Solve the equations 7. State the answer or answers to the problem. 8. Check the answer or answers in the original statement of the problem, not the equation that you set up. Now, let s look at some eample problems involving the perimeter of rectangles, square, and triangles. Revised 03/09 1

2 Eample l: The length of a rectangle is nine inches more than its width. If the perimeter of the rectangle is 62 inches, find its length and width. Let = the width W. Then + 9 = the length L since it is given to be 9 inches more than the width. +9 Since the perimeter P of a rectangle is given by P= 2W + 2L, and the perimeter is 62, 62= 2+ 2( + 9) 62= = = 4 11 The width of the rectangle is 11 inches. + 9= 20 The length of the rectangle is 20 inches. Eample 2: The longest side of a triangle is one foot more than twice the shortest side. The other side is eight feet less than the longest side. If the perimeter of the triangle is 54 feet, find the length of each side. Let the length of the shortest side. Then 2+ 1= the length of the longest side and (2+ 1) 8 or 2 7= the length of the other side. 2-7 Since the perimeter P of a triangle is given by P= A+ B+ C, and the perimeter is 54, 54 = + (2+ 1) + (2 7) 54= = 5 12 The length of the shortest side is 12 feet. 2+ 1= 25 The length of the longest side is 25 feet. 2 7= 17 The length of the other side is 17 feet. 2+1 Revised 03/09 2

3 Eample 3: A rectangle is formed by placing two identical squares side by side. If the perimeter of the rectangle is 90 centimeters, what is the length of a side of each square? Let = the length of a side of each square. The rectangle that is formed has a width of and a length of 2. Since the perimeter of a rectangle is given by P = 2 W + 2 L and the perimeter is 90, 90= = 6 15 The length of a side of each square is 15 centimeters. Eample 4: In a certain rectangle, the length is three inches more than the width. If the length is increased by four inches and the width is increased by two inches, the perimeter of the new rectangle will be 78 inches. Find the dimensions of the original rectangle. Let = the width of the original rectangle. Then + 3 = the length of the original rectangle. Since the width of the original rectangle is increased by 2, the new width is + 2; and since the length of the original rectangle is increased by 4, the new length is ( + 3) + 4 or + 7. Original Rectangle New Rectangle Using the dimensions of the new rectangle and substituting into the perimeter formula of a rectangle, P= 2W + 2L 78= 2( + 2) + 2( + 7) 78= = The width of the original rectangle is 15 inches. + 3= 18 The length of the original rectangle is 18 inches Revised 03/09 3

4 Eample 5: An 8 by 12 inch picture has a frame of uniform width. If the outer edge of the frame has a perimeter of 52 inches, how wide is the frame? Let = the width of the frame. It can be observed in the figure at the right that a frame of uniform width around the picture increases the dimensions of the 8 by 12 inch picture by 2 inches in each direction. The outer dimensions are (8+ 2 ) by (12+ 2 ) inches. Given the perimeter of the outer edge is 52, we form the equation 2(8+ 2 ) + 2(12+ 2 ) = = The width of the frame is 1.5 inches Eample 6: The length of a side of a square is twice the width of a rectangle, and the length of the rectangle is 21 feet. If the perimeter of the square is the same as the perimeter of the rectangle, find the dimensions of the square and the rectangle. Let = the width of the rectangle. Since the length of a side of the square is twice the width of the rectangle, 2 = the length of a side of the square The perimeter of the square is 4 2 or 8. The perimeter of the rectangle is or Since these perimeters are given to be the same, The dimensions of the rectangle (in feet) are 7 by The length of a side of the square is 14 feet.
