    Hey there,

    Answer:

    Width = xcm

    Length = xcm + 15

    x + x + x + 15 + x + 15 = 150cm
    4x = 150 – 15 – 15
    4x = 120
    x = 120 / 4
       = 30
    Width = 30 cm
    Length = 30 cm + 15 cm 
                 = 45 cm

    Hope this helps 😀

    Answer:

    Length = 45 cm , Width = 30 cm .

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given  : The Perimeter of a rectangle is 150 cm. The length is 15 cm greater than the width.

    To find : Find the dimensions.

    Solution : We have given

    Perimeter of rectangle = 150 cm .

    Length is 15 cm greater than the width.

    Length = 15 + width .

    Formula of perimeter = 2 ( length + width ) .

    Plugging the values .

    150 = 2 ( width + 15 + width ) .

    150 = 2 ( 15 +  2 width ) .

    On dividing both sides by 2.

    75 = 15 + 2 width .

    On subtracting both sides by 15 .

    75 – 15 = 2 width .

    60 = 2 width.

    On dividing both sides by 2.

    30 cm = width .

    Length =  15 + 30 .

    Length =  45 cm

    Therefore, Length = 45 cm , Width = 30 cm .
