**Reiny**, Thursday, December 29, 2011 at 4:33pmlet the width of the border be x inches

then

(10+2x)^2 - 100 ≤ 300

100 + 40x + 4x^2 - 100 - 300 ≤ 0

x^2+ 10x - 75 ≤ 0

(x+15)(x-5) ≤ 0

x = 5

So the largest frame is 20 by 20

check: Area of whole frame = 400

area of photo = 100

area of tiles = 300
