    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.

    Just add 22+22+10+10, and you'll have your new perimeter :)

    @jameshorton in the future, note that you should only ask one question per thread. Otherwise, the thread can get laggy. Plus, you're engagement score goes higher if you post more than one thread
