A. 7 in.

Step-by-step explanation:

We have been given that the perimeter of a rectangle is 16 inches. The equation that represents the perimeter of the rectangle is , where l represents the length of the rectangle and w represents the width of the rectangle.

We know that perimeter of rectangle is 2 times the sum of width and length of rectangle.    To be a rectangle length cannot be 8 as length and width of the rectangle is 8 inches.
