What is it that you needed help understanding?

- Faman39

Question i added already, u can see it, up there

- anonymous

no 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

- anonymous

In other words explain to me your reasoning

- Faman39

Thought i have to multiply, 6*4

- anonymous

The 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

- anonymous

Does that help?

- Faman39

No i cant really get it

- anonymous

Basically what the question is asking is for you to find the perimeter of the figure that is shown.

- Faman39

12?

- anonymous

Do you know how to go about find the perimeter of an object?

- Faman39

Actually i forgot

- Faman39

:(

- anonymous

When 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

- Faman39

It is tough to me, i think we need to break that shape

- anonymous

|dw:1352333862726:dw|

- anonymous

basically what we do to find the perimeter is to find the "fencing" or the sum of the lengths of the outside of the box

- Faman39

16?

- anonymous

yes for this case, the box that i provided it would be 16

- Faman39

But it is not in the option

- Faman39

So how can it be?

- anonymous

No i know I provided an example that I made up just now

- anonymous

My example was to help you understand trying to find the perimeter of something

- anonymous

So 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

- Faman39

13 :)

- Faman39

Thank u sooooooo much!!!!!!!! your amazing!!!!!!!! wow!

- Faman39

thanks alot :)

- anonymous

No problem but that isnt the answer

- anonymous

20 is the answer

- Faman39

no

- Faman39

How ?

- anonymous

Don't forget to count the sides that have no length to them

- Faman39

thats make me problem, those are unknown, so how will i ?

- Faman39

do it ?

- anonymous

|dw:1352334189436:dw|

- anonymous

You need to find the lengths of x and then you need to find the length of y

- Faman39

But how will. i do it?

- anonymous

Well you can notice that the object is not a full rectangle, it almost appears as if a piece was taken out of it

- anonymous

so then...

- anonymous

|dw:1352334433800:dw|

- anonymous

This is was the object would look like if we "added" the missing piece to it

- Faman39

4 more or what?

- anonymous

|dw:1352334499472:dw|

- anonymous

Let me explain my picture here so i don't confuse

- anonymous

Basically 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

- anonymous

|dw:1352334791201:dw|

- anonymous

So 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

- anonymous

so 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

- Faman39

8

- Faman39

and 5

- anonymous

So you think that x is 8 and y is 5?

- Faman39

yes u told to add, thats y

- anonymous

I meant to say one plus what number equals 4 to find x

- anonymous

oops
sorry i meant y

- anonymous

so one plus "a number" equals 4 to find y

- anonymous

and 2 plus "a number" equals 6 to find x

- Faman39

5 and 8, isnt it?

- Faman39

hold on, i will be back in a min

- anonymous

alright

- Faman39

pls dont go anywhere

- Faman39

thank you so so much! :)

- anonymous

Well so what you are saying when you say that x = 5 and y= 8 is that
2 + 5 = 6
and
1 + 8 = 4

- Faman39

8 + 1 would be the 4?

- Faman39

it suppose to be 9?

- anonymous

let me restate what i was trying to ask

- Faman39

oh ok

- anonymous

1 + y = 4
2 + x = 6

- anonymous

and I'm asking you to solve for y in the first equation

- anonymous

and then solve for x in the second equation

- Faman39

y is 5 and x is 8, right?

- anonymous

Not quite, let me show you how to do the first one and then try to do the second one by yourself again

- Faman39

ok

- anonymous

|dw:1352336186137:dw|

- anonymous

so 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

- anonymous

also 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

- Faman39

second is 4

- anonymous

Yes you are right for the second one

- Faman39

x = 4

- Faman39

same way i have to subtract

- Faman39

got this

- anonymous

so then now we know what y is and x is then we put them in for the lengths of the object

- anonymous

and add the lengths of all the sides

- Faman39

6 + 4 + 2 + 7 + 1 = 20

- anonymous

Correct!

- Faman39

Wow, thats a long process, thank you so much @juanjohnguy !!! your totally amazing

- Faman39

:) thank you so much helping alot with toleratin me, i m such a pain abt math

- Faman39

i m so sorry i already kept you so long with this

- anonymous

Oh it's not problem, I'm just glad you understand now

- anonymous

And don't worry about it, I'm working on homework right now so while you where typing and trying to understand i was doing my homework

- Faman39

Thank you so much :) you make this happend , it wasnt possible for me to understand

- Faman39

your too great!

- Faman39

ok you should go now, do your work cuz i took alot of ur time

- Faman39

i m so sorry

- anonymous

No reason to be sorry, as I said i'm just glad that you where able to understand

- Faman39

:) thanks alot!

- anonymous

No problem :)

- Faman39
