**Steve**, Monday, May 5, 2014 at 5:50pmIf the lot's width is w,

w*3w = (w+2*10)(3w+2*10) - w*3w + 1200

w = 40

so, the lot is 40x120

the total area is 60x140 = 8400

the lot's area is 40x120 = 4800

so, the walk's area is 3600

and the lot's area is 1200 more than that

**Steve**, Monday, May 5, 2014 at 6:27pm(w+2*10)(3w+2*10) = (w+20)(3w+20) so you just solve

3w^2 = (w+20)(3w+20) - 3w^2 + 1200

3w^2 = 3w^2+80w+400 - 3w^2 + 1200

3w^2 - 80w - 1600 = 0

(3w+40)(w-40) = 0

w = 40 or -40/3

If you can't do that, you have some serious reviewing to do.
