    Answer:

    Length = 58, width = 10

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given:

    Perimeter = 136 cm

    Length = 5 * width + 8

    Find dimensions of rectangle

    Solution:

    Write two equations

    L = length, W = width

    2(L+W) = 136 ……(1)

    L = 5W+8 …………(2)

    substitute (2) in (1)

    2(5W+8 + W) = 136

    6W+8 = 136/2 = 68

    6W = 68-8 = 60

    W = 60/6 = 10

    L = 5W+8 = 5(10)+8 = 58
