At a glance, the answer would be E. However, thinking about it again, we actually get two equations with two variables from this.

Assuming the length is x and the width is y, we have from (1) and (2):
x=2y+6
x=4y

Put them together, and we get 2y+6=4y, i.e. 2y=6, i.e. y=3. Now that we know the width, we can figure out the length through either (1) or (2). To be certain, we should plug it in just to verify our calculations. So with (1), x=2*3+6=12. (2) would be x=4*3=12.
