Explanation

This rectangle problem requires applying the perimeter and area formulas. The area of a rectangle is equal to length times width (A = LW) and the perimeter is 2L + 2W = 268. The question states that the length equals 168% of the width, L = 1.68W.

2L + 2W = 268

L + W = 134

1.68W + W = 134

2.68W = 134

W = 50

Solve for L by plugging 50 in for W in either equation:

L + 50 = 134

L = 84

A = 84(50) = 4,200

Hence option B is correct!
