Hi!
I have been stuck on this problem for the past 20 minutes. Please help!

A rectangular garden 30m by 40m has two paths of equal width crossing through as shwon. Find the width of each path if the total area covered by the paths s 325m^2.

() - represents garden
t - represents how paths cross

( t ) - the paths are like a lower case t. One goes straight p and down and the second goes across.

    They are 5 meters wide a piece which would give you 350 m^2. You then take away 25 meters for where they cross.
