The rectangle is 4 inches wide.

Step-by-step explanation:

To find the area of the rectangle, we would use the equation:

• l × w = A

where l is the length, w id the width, and A is the area.

We can rewrite this equation to solve for w by dividing both sides of the equation by l:

• w = A/l

where l is the length, w id the width, and A is the area.

We know that the area is 28 in² and the length is 7 in. Plug 7 for l and 28 for A into the equation the equation and solve for w:

w = 28/7

Simplify.

w = 4

Remember, the width and area of the rectangle is given to us in inches and square inches, so the width must also be in inches.

The width is 4 inches.

The rectangle is 4 inches wide.
