You will find in the above rectangle h stand for the width, 2h + 11 stands for the length, and 2h + 13 is the hypotenuse. So the width is is 12 inches, the length is 35 inches, and the hypotenuse is 37 inches.

NB: h can be replaced by any letter. It does not mean the height. Remember the width is the shortest side of a rectangle.

"The length of a rectangle is 11 inches greater than twice the width."

Hence the length is 2h +11 and the width h.

The length is given by 2h + 11 and h is 12, so the length is 35 inches.

Thanks for your patience once more and sorry for the minor correction.
