You need to find the perimeter of the two rectangles. Then subtract the amount of molding she has from the combined perimeters.
Is that top left picture a square?
yeah there suppose to be squares
Well the bottom left one looks like a rectangle, not a square
A square has all four sides equal.
i know. i just don't like how the drawing thing works
Nothing wrong with that, just useful information to help you
You do know how to find the perimeter?
