"Perimeter" means all the way around, all four sides. That's two lengths and two widths.  So one length and one width is half of the perimeter.  If the perimeter is 16-ft, then one length + one width is 8-ft.  If the width is 5-ft, then the length is (8 - 5) = 3-ft.   My friend told me this one today
