the perimeter of a rectangular herb  garden is 74 ft. if the length of the garden is 5ft longer than 3 times its width, what is the gardens width

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Perimeter = 2L + 2W = 74 ft

L = 3W + 5

2(3W + 5) + 2W = 74

6W + 10 + 2W = 74

8W = 74 - 10

8W = 64

W = 64/8

 W = 8

The width is 8 ft


Thanks
