Given: Area = 21 in² length = 6 in. width = ? The area of a rectangle is computed by multiplying its length by its width. A = l * w 21 in² = 6 in * w To find width, divide the area by its length. 21in²/6in = w 3.5 in. = w. The width is 3.5 inches. to check: Area = Length * Width 21 in² = 6 in x 3.5 in 21 in² = 21 in²

We are given: Area = 21 inches² Length = 6 inches Width = x inches We can use this formula to solve for the width: Area = Length × Width 21 inches² = 6 inches · x inches 21 inches² = 6x inches² 21 = 6x Now, divide both sides by 6. 21/6 = 6x/6 21/6 = x [latex]x=frac{21}{6}=frac{7 imes3}{2 imes3} = frac{7}{2} =oxed{f{ 3.5}}[/latex] The width is 3.5 inches.
