Mrs. Henson's rectangular afghan is 2 feet

longer than it is wide. If the afghan has an

area of 24 square feet, what is its width?

(Remember, the area of a rectangle is its

length times its width.)

    The width is 4

    Step-by-step explanation:

    If the length is 6 feet, minus 2 will be 4. Six times 4 is 24, which is the area of the afghan rug. We are multiplying 6 and 4 because it is length times width in rectangle area.
