1. From the problem statement we know that the plaid has the shape of a rectangle. Moreover, the length of this blanket is 18 dm.

2. Let’s calculate what the width of this blanket is equal to if we know that it is 2/9 of its length. This means that the length of the blanket must be multiplied by the part that is its width. Let’s calculate the product of the given values.

18 * 2/9 = 36/9 = 4 dm.

18 + 18 + 4 + 4 = 44 dm.
