x = width of garden

x + 6 = length of garden

Area of garden = x(x + 6)

x + 6 = width of garden and walkway

x + 6 + 6 = x + 12 = length of garden and walkway

Area of garden and walkway =

(x + 6)(x + 12)

Area of garden and walkway - 288 = area of garden

(x + 6)(x + 12) - 288 = x(x + 6)

Solve for x, width of garden

x + 6 = length of garden
