Answer:therefore, the width of the rectangle is 10m and length is 20m.

Step-by-step explanation:Let n represent width

Let n represent width #2

let 2n represent length

let 2n represent length #2

n+n+2n+2n=60

6n=60

n=60/6

n=10

width=10

length= 2n

= 2*10

=20

Let x represent the width of the rectangle.

We know 2x=length

Perimeter of a rectangle is 2(length)+2(width)

So we can make an equation for the perimeter of this particular rectangle.

2(2x)+2(x)=60

4x+2x=60

6x=60

x=10.

Since the width is equal to x, we know that the width of this rectangle is 10 m.

And, the length is twice of the width.

10*2=20

Therefore, the length of the rectangle is 20 meters.
