At a large nursery, a border for a rectangular garden is being built. Designers want the border's length to be 5 ft greater than its width. A maximum of 180 ft of fencing is available for the border. Write and solve an inequality that describes possible widths of the garden.
Help appreaciated thanks.

L = W + 5
Maximum of 180 feet of fencing is available
2L + 2W <= 180
Substitute the value for L and solve.
