| First of all, we calculate the width of the rectangle, provided that it is 50 dm shorter than its length, equal to 6 m, which is:

6 – 5 = 1 m. Based on the fact that 1 m = 10 dm.

Let us determine the sum of all sides of such a figure, based on the formula:

P = 2a + 2b = 2 * 6 + 2 * 1. Find the products, then their sum:

P = 12 + 2 = 14 m – the perimeter of the rectangle.
