July 31, 2021 | education

| Let the length of the rectangle be equal to y, then using the formula P = 2a + 2b, where P is the perimeter of a rectangle with length a and width b, we compose the equation:

2 * 2 + 2 * y = 20,

4 + 2y = 20,

2y = 20 – 4,

2y = 16,

y = 16/2,

y = 8 cm.

Answer: The length of the rectangle is 8 centimeters.
