Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this answer is x=2...my book said that the top border and left border were x though, not the little squares in the corners....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2x 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.
