Math Question for Friday, March 27th, 2015

A rectangle is twice as long as it is wide. If the width of the rectangle is 3 inches, what is the rectangle’s area, in square inches?

**F.** 6

**G.** 9

**H.** 12

**J.** 15

**K.** 18

## Incorrect

**F.** If the area were 6, then *l* = = 2, but this length isn't twice the width.

## Incorrect

**G.** If the area were 9, then *l* = = 3, but this length isn't twice the width.

## Incorrect

**H.** If the area were 12, then *l* = = 4, but this length isn't twice the width.

## Incorrect

**J.** If the area were 15, then *l* = = 5, but this length isn't twice the width.

## Correct!

**The correct answer is K.**
The rectangle is 3 inches by 6 inches, so the area is 3(6) = 18 square inches.
