The length of the smaller is 16 inches and the width is 13 inches. Jeremy has 5 strips of unfinished molding that he wants to use to frame the two pictures. Each strip is 36 inches long. Assuming there is no wastage or overlap of molding, what is the minimum length of molding, in inches, Jeremy still requires to frame both the pictures?

    58.5/13 = x/16. x = length of larger rectangle. 58.5*x + 13*16 = total area.
