    A rectangle is a four sided geometric shape with four right angles and is usually applied to oblongs rather than squares.  To get four right angles, the opposites must be the same length.  To obtain a 22m perimeter, the way all around the outer edge of a geometric shape, we need, in this instance, two by 8m and two by 3m, so your width is 3m.
    Unless, of course, you are playing some very clever trick, or the rules of maths has changed, or I'm too old and have forgotten the laws of geometry.
