Can you figure it out from here?

so it would be 2(2x+4)+2(x+4)=P ?

What does P equal?

You can always count on mertsj to crash the party

p=perimeter....so that equation would be correct tho?

What do you think the 46 is for?

ahhh i wasn't sure...

There are 46 feet of fence, so P=46.

The one you created where you included the P variable.

oh so just plug in 5 for x?

Precisely :)

i got a=126 but the book says the answer is 50 sq ft...

So me the work you did to find the area

Show all of your work actually...For both perimeter and area

a= (x+4)(2x+4)
a= (5+4)(2(5)+4)
a=(9)(14)
a=126

p=2(x+4)+2(2x+4)=46
2x+8+4x+8=46
6x+16=46\
6x=30
x=5; 2x=10
5 by 10

Yes, that is correct. Is that your corrected solution?

the book says the area is 50 sq ft, not 126

ohhhhh so the inside then not the fencing....

Read the original question again

It asked for the dimensions of the garden, not the fencing

But you know that now...

So great job

are you there?
