Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hmmm.... I'm trying to understand the shape. Are both the long parts 3 by 6? and the middle part 4 by 3?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the middle part is 3 feet and the long part is 6 feet. We just subtract them. 6  3 = 3. BUT 3 is the length of both the top "?" and the bottom "?" of one side.
