    Answer:

    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.

    \text{Perimeter}=2(l+w)

    \text{16 in}=2(l+w)

    \frac{\text{16 in}}{2}=\frac{2(l+w)}{2}

    \text{8 in}=l+w

    To be a rectangle length cannot be 8 as length and width of the rectangle is 8 inches.

    Therefore, 7 inches the possible value for the length of the rectangle.
