    P=2L + 2W
    88=2(3w) + 2w
    88=6w +2w
    88=8w
    88/8=8w/8
    11=w
    If the perimeter is 88 and the width is 11 and the length is 3 times the width then the length is 33 and you plug those numbers into the original formula you get the starting perimeter of 88
    P=2L + 2W
    P=2(33) + 2(11)
    P=66+22
    P=88
