A square flower garden and a sidewalk around the garden have an area of 400 ft2. The sidewalk has a width of 3 ft. What is the length of one side of the flower garden?

  • Math -

    the total width is 20ft (400 = 20x20)
    6ft of that is sidewalk (on both ends)

    the garden is 14x14

  • Math -

    is it square?

    If so, then s^2 + (s+6)*3*2+2*3*s=400
    figure out what s is ... and figure out how I got that equation...
