# the lenghty of a rectangal is 8 feet more than its width. the pirimete of the rectangle is 72 feet. Find the width

Width of the rectangle is 14 ft

Step-by-step explanation:

• Step 1: Let the width of the rectangle be x. Then length = 8 + x. Perimeter = 72 ft.

Perimeter = 2(length + width)

72 = 2 (8 + x + x)

72 = 16 + 4x

4x = 56

x = 56/4 = 14

∴ Width of the rectangle is 14 ft

Bill says he can add 23 and 40 without regrouping. Is bill correct? How do you know?

Step-by-step explanation:

Yes bill is correct because both numbers are easy to add without regrouping, since when each of the digit are added there won't be carried over. Also, I believe Bill should be able to do simple mathematics like 2+3, 3+5 and so on.

Then, he should be able to add 3 plus 0 in his head and keep the result as 3. And then add the other 2+4 and he will put the two result together as 63

Yes Bill is correct because
3+0 you don't have to regroup
And 4+2 you don't have to regroup

Step-by-step explanation:

The Colorado River is 1,450 miles long. This is 752 miles shorter than the Mississippi River. Write an equation that describes this relationship.

1450-752=698 miles long Mississippi River.

4^2 + 5 • 3^2 – 4^2 ÷ 2^3

Following the order of operations:
4^2 + 5 * 3^2 – 4^2 / 2^3
16 + 5 * 3^2 – 4^2 / 2^3
16 + 5 * 9 – 4^2 / 2^3
16 + 5 * 9 – 16 / 2^3
16 + 5 * 9 – 16 / 8
16 + 45 – 16 / 8
16 + 45 – 2
61 – 2
