Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Question i added already, u can see it, up there

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no i know but i mean i know what the answer is and I'm pretty sure i'm right, but I was asking more so as to why you gave 24 as the answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The question is asking for what length of fencing you need to enclose the garden, what you are doing is finding the area which would be the same as saying that you wanted to fill the whole inner spacing of the garden rather what we really want which is around the outside of the garden

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Basically what the question is asking is for you to find the perimeter of the figure that is shown.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Do you know how to go about find the perimeter of an object?

juanjohnguy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1When you find the perimeter of an object, let's us an example of a square and lets say that we know the lengths of all the sides of the square

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It is tough to me, i think we need to break that shape

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1basically what we do to find the perimeter is to find the "fencing" or the sum of the lengths of the outside of the box

juanjohnguy
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes for this case, the box that i provided it would be 16

Faman39

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But it is not in the option

juanjohnguy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No i know I provided an example that I made up just now

juanjohnguy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1My example was to help you understand trying to find the perimeter of something

juanjohnguy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So now that you know that all you need to do is add up the lengths of all the sides, try doing it for the problem that was given to you

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thank u sooooooo much!!!!!!!! your amazing!!!!!!!! wow!

juanjohnguy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No problem but that isnt the answer

juanjohnguy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Don't forget to count the sides that have no length to them

Faman39

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thats make me problem, those are unknown, so how will i ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You need to find the lengths of x and then you need to find the length of y

juanjohnguy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well you can notice that the object is not a full rectangle, it almost appears as if a piece was taken out of it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1This is was the object would look like if we "added" the missing piece to it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Let me explain my picture here so i don't confuse

juanjohnguy
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Basically since i added a piece to make it into a rectangle, we notice that for the right side of the completed rectangle.....when we add the missing piece, that side must be the same length as the other side and we see that the other side (the left side) has a length of 4......the same thing applies for the bottom part.....we notice that now that i added the missing piece to form a perfect rectangle, the bottom needs to be the same length as the top so the bottom (with the missing piece) need to be 6 just like the length of the top

juanjohnguy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So then with this final picture we can see that when we take the missing piece back out, we have the picture that is given as your problem but we still notice that the bottom needs to equal to a length of 6 and the right side needs to equal to a length of 4

juanjohnguy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so to make things more simple, to find the length of x we need to think " 2 + what = 6" and to find the length of y we need to think "1 + what = 4

juanjohnguy
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So you think that x is 8 and y is 5?

Faman39
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes u told to add, thats y

juanjohnguy
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I meant to say one plus what number equals 4 to find x

juanjohnguy
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oops sorry i meant y

juanjohnguy
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so one plus "a number" equals 4 to find y

juanjohnguy
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and 2 plus "a number" equals 6 to find x

Faman39

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thank you so so much! :)

juanjohnguy
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well so what you are saying when you say that x = 5 and y= 8 is that 2 + 5 = 6 and 1 + 8 = 4

juanjohnguy
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1let me restate what i was trying to ask

juanjohnguy
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.11 + y = 4 2 + x = 6

juanjohnguy
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and I'm asking you to solve for y in the first equation

juanjohnguy
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and then solve for x in the second equation

Faman39

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y is 5 and x is 8, right?

juanjohnguy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Not quite, let me show you how to do the first one and then try to do the second one by yourself again

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so the 1 under the 1 and the 4 shows that i subtracted 1 from both sides so that i could get rid of the one that was connected to the y

juanjohnguy
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1also the way I got rid of the 1 from the right is that we know that the one on the left side is a positive one and to get rid of it we want to make that one turn to a zero......so we subtract from a positive one so that 1 1 = 0 which is how we can get the y by itself

juanjohnguy
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes you are right for the second one

Faman39
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0same way i have to subtract

juanjohnguy
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so then now we know what y is and x is then we put them in for the lengths of the object

juanjohnguy
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and add the lengths of all the sides

Faman39
