00:00:00.990 --> 00:00:05.820
The width of a rectangle is five more than half of the length.
00:00:06.560 --> 00:00:11.230
Write an equation for the width, 𝑤, in terms of the length, 𝑙.
00:00:12.650 --> 00:00:20.450
If the length of the rectangle is 𝑙, then half of the length will be 𝑙 divided by two or 𝑙 over two.
00:00:21.880 --> 00:00:24.930
We are told that the width is five more than this.
00:00:24.960 --> 00:00:28.520
So we need to add five to 𝑙 over two.
00:00:29.800 --> 00:00:34.340
The width 𝑤 is equal to 𝑙 over two plus five.
00:00:35.600 --> 00:00:41.840
We could use this equation to calculate the width when given the length or vice versa.
