    The length of a rectangle is three times its width.
    The perimeter of the rectangle is 96cm.
    Label the diagram with the correct length and width for the rectangle ?

    There are 2 x length and 2 x width in the perimeter

    Let the width be x, so the length = 3x

    Form an equation in terms of x and solve it to find the width. You can then use this to find the length.

    Spoiler:

    2*x + 2*3x = 2x + 6x = 8x

    8x = 96

    x = 96/8 = 12cm

    Width = 12cm, so length = 3 x 12 = 36cm

    I'll get you started:

    We can deduce that the ratio width:length is 1:3.

    So let the width be x. The length would therefore be 3x, due to the ratio.

    What you can do now is calculate the perimeter in terms of x. Then equate this to the actual perimeter (96cm), and solve.

    Finally, substitute your found value of x into the expressions we made for the length and width of the rectangle. You can do it!

    Imagine pushing the inverted long edge up, and the inverted short edge to the right. You will get a complete rectangle, then it'll be easy!

    You can see that the lines parallel to the 16cm side add up to 16 cm and the lines parallel to the 11cm side add up to 11cm. So the perimeter is 2x(11+16)=54
