What is the length of a soccer field in feet

1. SOCCER Suppose a youth soccer field has a

perimeter of 320 yards and its length measures 40
yards more than its width. Ms. Hughey asks her
players to determine the length and width of their
field. She gives them the following system of
equations to represent the situation. Use elimination to
solve the system to find the length and width of the
field.
2L + 2W=320
L – W = 40
