    Width of the rectangle is 14 ft

    Step-by-step explanation:

    • Step 1: Let the width of the rectangle be x. Then length = 8 + x. Perimeter = 72 ft.

    Perimeter = 2(length + width)

    72 = 2 (8 + x + x)

    72 = 16 + 4x

    4x = 56

    x = 56/4 = 14

    ∴ Width of the rectangle is 14 ft
