this is the pool problem again
x+12+x = width x+16+x = length

nah, just add up twice the length and width and equal it out to 72
4x+24+4x+32 = 72 if i see it right; where x = width of frame
|dw:1327424303620:dw|
x+6+x+8 = 18 2x = 4 x = 2?
P=72=2(16+2x)+2(12+2x) 72=32+4x+24+4x 72=56+8x 16=8x x=2=the width of the frame
this answer is x=2...my book said that the top border and left border were x though, not the little squares in the corners....
x is the width of the border and the border is the same width all the way around so if the little squares in the corner are x inches long and x inches wide, then that is what the entire border is.
oh! ok that makes total sense. thanks for helping! :D
