The Problem

a bulletin board has a width of 60 inchs. when originally decorated need 192 inches of boarder material how many inches high is the bulletin board

Answer provided by our tutors

Considering that the bulletin board is rectangle with

w = 60 in the width

l = the length (height)

P = 192 in and P = 2*(l + w) perimeter of the board

we have

2*(l + 60) = 192

l = 36 in

The bulletin board is 36 in high.
