Question i added already, u can see it, up there
 one year ago

juanjohnguyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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

juanjohnguyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
In other words explain to me your reasoning

Thought i have to multiply, 6*4

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

No i cant really get it

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

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

juanjohnguyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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

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

juanjohnguyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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
 one year ago

juanjohnguyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes for this case, the box that i provided it would be 16
 one year ago

Faman39Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
But it is not in the option
 one year ago

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

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

juanjohnguyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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
 one year ago

Faman39Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Thank u sooooooo much!!!!!!!! your amazing!!!!!!!! wow!
 one year ago

juanjohnguyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
No problem but that isnt the answer
 one year ago

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

Faman39Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
thats make me problem, those are unknown, so how will i ?

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

Faman39Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
But how will. i do it?
 one year ago

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

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

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

juanjohnguyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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

 one year ago

juanjohnguyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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
 one year ago

juanjohnguyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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
 one year ago

juanjohnguyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
So you think that x is 8 and y is 5?
 one year ago

Faman39Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yes u told to add, thats y
 one year ago

juanjohnguyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
I meant to say one plus what number equals 4 to find x
 one year ago

juanjohnguyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
oops sorry i meant y
 one year ago

juanjohnguyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so one plus "a number" equals 4 to find y
 one year ago

juanjohnguyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
and 2 plus "a number" equals 6 to find x
 one year ago

Faman39Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
hold on, i will be back in a min
 one year ago

Faman39Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
thank you so so much! :)
 one year ago

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

juanjohnguyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
let me restate what i was trying to ask
 one year ago

juanjohnguyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
1 + y = 4 2 + x = 6
 one year ago

juanjohnguyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
and I'm asking you to solve for y in the first equation
 one year ago

juanjohnguyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
and then solve for x in the second equation
 one year ago

Faman39Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
y is 5 and x is 8, right?
 one year ago

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

juanjohnguyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1

 one year ago

juanjohnguyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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
 one year ago

juanjohnguyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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
 one year ago

juanjohnguyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Yes you are right for the second one
 one year ago

Faman39Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
same way i have to subtract
 one year ago

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

juanjohnguyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
and add the lengths of all the sides
 one year ago

Faman39Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
6 + 4 + 2 + 7 + 1 = 20
 one year ago

Faman39Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Wow, thats a long process, thank you so much @juanjohnguy !!! your totally amazing

Faman39Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
i m so sorry i already kept you so long with this
 one year ago

juanjohnguyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Oh it's not problem, I'm just glad you understand now
 one year ago

juanjohnguyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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
 one year ago

Faman39Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Thank you so much :) you make this happend , it wasnt possible for me to understand
 one year ago

Faman39Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
ok you should go now, do your work cuz i took alot of ur time
