A corner lot has dimensions 25 by 40 yards. The city plans to take a strip of uniform width along the two sides bordering the streets to widen these roads. How wide should the strip be if the remainder of the lot is to have an area of 844 square yards? (Round your answer to two decimal places.) I got help before and got the answer of 3.12 yds but im still getting it as wrong so im all lost :/
