i have a couple of problems like these,please help--show me the formulas and solutions to these so i can study how it's done

thank YOU so much

• Math help!! for finals -

picture area = 8x12 = 96
If the frame has width w, then the total framed area is
(8+2w)(12+2w) = 96+96
now just solve for w and get the new dimensions

If the 3%=x and the 5% = y, then

.03x + .05y = 1160
.02(1.25x) + .05(1.40y) = 1160+410
now just solve for x and y.
