| **The perimeter of the rectangle is 2.36 m, the width of the rectangle is 0.42 m, how much is the length of the rectangle greater than its width?**

Let’s calculate what the half-perimeter of the rectangle is. To do this, let’s divide the perimeter into two:

2.36 meters: 2 = 1.18 meters.

Subtract the width of 0.42 meters from the floor perimeter:

1.18 meters – 0.42 meters = 0.76 meters.

The length of the rectangle is 0.76 meters.

Let’s calculate how much the rectangle is longer than the rectangle’s width. Subtract from the length of the rectangle – 0.76 meters, the width of the rectangle – 0.42 meters:

0.76 meters – 0.42 meters = 0.34 meters.

Answer: the length of the rectangle is greater than the width of the rectangle by 0.34 meters.
