Can someone explain how to solve this?

A rectangular circuit board is designed to have a width W inches, perimeter P inches, and area K inches. Which of the following equations must be true?

a) w2 + pw + k = 0
b) w2 - pw = 2k = 0
c) 2w2 + pw - 2k = 0
d) 2w2 - pw + 2k = 0
e) 2w2 - pw + 2k = 0

(note w2 is W squared)

assume l to be length. Then area k = l*w and perimeter p = 2(l+w)
substitute in equation to solve

c) 2w2 + pw - 2k = 0
d) 2w2 - pw + 2k = 0
e) 2w2 - pw + 2k = 0

(note w2 is W squared)


p = 2(l+w)
l = (p-2w)/2
l = k/w
(p-2w)/2 = k/w
w(p-2w) = 2k
pw - 2w^2 - 2k = 0
2w^2 -pw + 2k = 0

B is unclear and incomplete.
D and E are same??
A is never possible.

Chose between D and E.
