Remember perimeter of a regtangle is P=2L+2W

So your formula would be 44=2(12)+2W

                                                  44=24+2w

                                               -24   =    -24

                                                  20=2w

                                                     2

                                             w=10

 

So the regtangle would 2 sides equaling 12 & 2 sides equaling 10. 

 

To check you would 44=2(12)+2(10)

                                        44=44

I see, you -24 by both sides of the equation.  then divided the answer by 2, which gave it like terms.  Ok, I think I have it.
