P= 2l+2w
l=2w
36= 2(2w)+2w
36=4w+2w
36=6w
w= 6
l=2(w)=12
so width =6 inches and length = 12 inches

2L+ 2B=36
4x+2x=36
x=6
Area =12*6=72 inch^2

Proof of angle Bisector Theorem by Vectors
For Δ A B C, let AD is its internal angle bisector, then we know that A B A C = B D C D and I know that it can be proved by geometry by drawing a line through C parallel to AD and extend AB so that it cuts new line and then use various angles and concept of similar triangle to prove our result. But I was wondering if we can prove it with the help of vectors as well?
If we take position vectors of A,B and C as 0 , b and c respectively , then A D can be taken as λ ( b ^ + c ^ ). Could someone help me to proceed after that or provide some alternate approach through vectors?
