Phana’s garden is

Draw a diagram.

**Rectangle, with green rectangle centered inside, left side labeled, 2 meters, bottom side labeled, 5 meters.**

Find the total area of the outside rectangle by adding

the area of the inside rectangle to the area of the walkway.

**Added, blue dashed lines, perpendicular to sides, between top, bottom, right, & left sides, of inner & outer rectangles, each labeled, x.**

If meters of walkway was added to each side, write an

expression for each side of the outside rectangle.

Now write an equation of the form (length)(width) = area and solve for .

Make sure you remember to answer the original question.
