## girlinthemirror 3 years ago Enrique has four strips of unfinished molding that she wants to use to frame the two pictures. Each strip is 36 inches long. Assuming there is no wastage or overlap of molding, what is the minimum length of molding, in inches, Enrique still requires to frame both the pictures? Show your work and explain your reasoning in complete sentences.

You need to find the perimeter of the two rectangles. Then subtract the amount of molding she has from the combined perimeters.
