The perimeter of a rectangular garden is 35 feet. The length of the garden is 1 foot more than 2 times its width.

Write an equation to represent the perimeter of the garden in terms of its width (w).

What are the length and width of the garden in feet?

  • Algebra -

    2(2w+1) + 2 W = 35

    4 w + 2 + 2 w = 35

    6 w = 33

    w = 5.5
    then L = 2 w + 1 = 12
