Spencer wants to plant strawberries for his garden. To do this, he has to increase the garden and the fence around it. Spencer decides one side can be twice as big and the other side four times as big. One side measures 7feet long and the other side is 5 feet long.
What is the square feet of the garden and how many feet of fencing will have to go around the garden.
Double digit numbers are not to be used

1. Steve

7*5=35
2*4*35 = 280 (new area)

2(7*4+5*2) = 76 (new perimeter)
2(7*2+5*4) = 68 (new perimeter)
You don't say which side is 2x and which is 4x larger

No idea how to work this without double-digit numbers
