Hello, welcome to just answer.
equation 1: L=3+2W
equation 2: 90=2L+2W
a)
If we replace L in equation 2 by L in equation 1 we get:
90=2(3+2W)+2W
b)
Solving 90=2(3+2W)+2W for W we get:
90=6+4W+2W
90=6+6W
84=6W
84/6=W = 14 = width
To then find L we use equation 2 (90=2L+2W)
90=2L+2*14
90=2L+28
(9028)/2) = 31 = length
so perimeter = 14 + 14 + 31 +31 = 90
c)
L = 31 again.
NEW_W = (31/2)5 = 10.5
New perimeter = 10.5 + 10.5 + 31 + 31 = 83

Sorry for the delay.
"length of rectangle is 3cm longer than twice the width"
So, yes you need to use the 3cm information. I did not saw your own calculation so i can't really point where you messed up.
The equation 1 and equation 2 i wrote in my original answer are the original data of the problem wrote as equation instead of text.
