Here, we have a garden that is 17 feet long. We also know that the perimeter is 54 feet. So let's draw what we know

So we know the length is 17.
17 x 2 =34
So we know that out of the 54 units, 34 units of the perimeter is the length. From this information, we know that 54-34=20. Therefore, the width must be 10.
