Sophina bought 3 yards of trim to put around a rectangular scarf. She does not want the scarf to be wider than 12 inches or narrower than 6 inches. Using whole numbers, if she uses all the trim, what are the possible dimensions of her scarf in inches?

9" by 9"

2W + 2L = 36

3yd of trim = 3 x 36" = 108" of trim

if it goes around the rectangle, then 108" = the perimeter of the rectangle. So, P = 2L + 2W = 108

Possible sizes are 42" x 12" and 48" x 6"
