DS Geometry problem - It is out of a UCLA workbook

    If L and W represent the length and width of a rectangle, respectively, what is the peremeter?

    (1) 2l + w = 40

    (2) l+w = 25

    I thought the answer was A, but I was wrong...


    According to the solution set, the answer is b cuz you can solve the problem by the following equation.

    How would you get the perimeter if you have the info in B?

    Perimeter = 2(l+w). Knowing the value of l+w can easily give
    the perimeter. Hence B
