# The perimeter of the rectangle is 2.36 m, the width of the rectangle is 0.42 m, how much is the length

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.
