6th Grade students should learn the skill of finding the missing dimensions of a rectangle when its perimeter is given. “Solving for missing dimension of a rectangle given perimeter Practice Problem” will help the students in mastering this skill and they will have a solid foundation for future geometry and algebra. 

 

For example, if a rectangle has a perimeter of 24 units and a length of 8 units, then P=2l+2w becomes 24=2(8)+2w, which simplifies to 24=16+2w, and finally 8=w. Therefore, the missing dimension is the width, which is 8 units.
