Homework Help: Algebra

Posted by Jamie on Saturday, September 15, 2007 at 4:02pm.

Now this next question I unfortunately don't get at all:
~Chow Li is planting a border of 48 seedlings that will completely surround a rectangular garden plot. He wants to plant the seedlings 2 feet apart. If the garden plot is to be 30 feet long, how wide should it be?~
Can you please steer me in the right direction? I really just don't know where to start. I've tried a little bit of multiplication but I think I'm going the wrong way...
