  1. w+w+2w=32
    w=8

    the garden is 8x16 so the area is 128ft^2

  2. If you don't know what your School Subject is, who does? I suspect it's math.

    P = 2L + 2W

    32 = L + 2(0.5L)

    32 = 2L

    16 = L

  6. I'm so sorry, Lee, that you don't realize that college is a school. At least most colleges are schools for educating students. What is the name of your college?

    A fence needs to go around the entire garden. It has two lengths and two widths, right? One length lies along the wall. That means that two widths and one length are enclosed by the fence.

    16 + 8 + 8 = 32
