1. let the width of the frame be x cm

width of whole thing = 8+2x
length of the whole thing = 12 + 2x

whole thing - actual picture = actual picture
(8+2x)(12+2x) - 96 = 96

expand and simplify, take everything to the left and you have a quadratic equation, which you said you can handle.
(hint: you should get x=2)
