    Start with the known facts and translate into equations. First look at the infor on Tony's garden, it is equal to 2(w) and 2(L) as Edwins Garden. Second. Look at Edwins Garden. The area is is 600 sq ft. and we know that Area is the formula A = L(w) so the equation for Edwin is 600 = L(W) If Tonys garden is 2(L) and 2(w) then it is 4 times the size of Edwins. So 600 times 4 equals 2400.
