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.
