the length of a football feild is 180 feet more than it's width. if the perimeter of the feild is 1,060 feet, find the length of the feild

First we have to know that a football field is a rectangle so the opposite sides are equal to each other.

so lets say that

width = x

then

length = x + 180

2(length) + 2(width) = Perimeter

2(x + 180) + 2(x) = 1060

2x + 360 + 2x = 1060

4x + 360 = 1060

- 360 -360

4x =
700

4 4

x = 175 ft.

Now we know that width = 175 ft

so, length = x + 180

length = 175 + 180

length = 355 ft

Check,

2(355) + 2(175) = 1060

710 + 350 = 1060

1060 = 1060
