Linda is designing a poster. The top of the poster is 4 inches long, and the rest of the poster is 2 inches longer than the width. If the poster requires 616 sq inches of poster board, find the width of the poster.

    OK!! lol only why you have to divide by 2 is because, that is the last of the posterboard.. Or as i would do it i would take 616 divided by 4 then take that answer divided by 2 because, it is the last of the problem you have to do ...
