    Answer:

    Width = 3

    Length = 4

    Step-by-step explanation:

    the perimeter = L+L+W+W

    we know the perimeter to be 14 so 14 = L+L+W+W and it tells us the length is 1ft more the the width so the width will be x and the length will be x+1

    14 = x+1+x+1+x+x

    Combind like terms:

    14 = 4x+2

    -2 +14 = 4x+2 -2

    12 = 4x

    12/4 = (4x)/4

    x = 3

    Taking this peice of information we stick it back into our side lengths.

    x and x+1

    the width = x and length = x+1
