María plans to enclose a rectangular area of her yard using the
16-foot side of her storage shed as one side of the enclosure,
as shown above. If she uses 64 feet of fencing to complete the
enclosure, what will be the length, x, of the enclosure?
One side of the fencing must be 16 feet.
(64 - 16)/2 = x
48/2 = x
24 = x
