An architect is designing a rectangular greenhouse. Along one wall is a 7ft storage area and 5 sections for different kinds of plants. On the opposite wall is a 4 ft storage area and 6 sections for plants. All of the sections for plants are of equal length. What is the length of each wall?

7 + 5x = 4 + 6x
74 = 6x5x
3 = x
