Checking my son's homework and want to see if he figured this out correctly .. i am too old to be revisiting this math ... Here is the question ... The perimeter of a rectangle patio is six times the length of the shorter side. If the shorter side is 8 feet, what is the length of the longer side?

He multiplied 6 X 8 to get 48 .. is that correct?

Thanks a million in advance!

  2. Mom,

    You are never too old to re-visit maths. Many of my students studying undergraduate maths and chemistry are 35+.
