The length of a rectangular rug is twice its width. The rug is centered in a rectangular room. Each edge is 3ft. From the nearest wall. What is the area of the room?
the rug is w x 2w
The room is thus (w+6) x (2w+6)
Not knowing either the width or the area of the rug, it's hard to put a number on the area of the room.
