perimiter=measure around the field or width+width+legnth+legnth or 2width+2legnth p=perimiter w=width l=legnth p=2w+2l p=1.48 km 1km=1000m 1.48km=1480 m p=1480 1480=2w+2l l=460 subsitute 1480=2w+2(460) 1480=2w+920 subtract 920 from both sides 560=2w divide both isdes by 2 280=w width=280 meters

280 meters wide because if you double 460 and subtract the answer from 1480 then divid by 2 you get the answer.
