The perimeter of a rectangular garden is 35 feet. The length of the garden is 1 foot more than 2 times its width.
Write an equation to represent the perimeter of the garden in terms of its width (w).
What are the length and width of the garden in feet?

2(2w+1) + 2 W = 35
4 w + 2 + 2 w = 35
6 w = 33
w = 5.5
then L = 2 w + 1 = 12
