    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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
