World’s Largest Ice Cream Cake.
Carvel Corporation, the nation’s first retail ice cream franchise, built the
world’s largest ice cream cake in Union Square on May 26, 2004.
Weighing 12,096 lb, the cake too 75 min and
54 people to build and assemble.
The cake’s length was 10 ft longer than its width, and its perimeter was 56 ft.
What were the width and the length of the cake, in feet?
Length = (x+10)
P = l + w
P = 2w + 2l
56 =
x + x + 2(x + 10)
56 = 2x + 2x + 20
56 = 4x + 20;
5620 = 4x
36 = 4x
9 = x
or
x = 9
(length is 10 ft longer than the width)
9 + 10 = 19
(length = 19; width = 9)
18.)
