So let's draw this garden here, Tina's garden.
But they also tell us that the actual numerical value of the perimeter is 60 feet. So this perimeter 6w must be equal to 60 if we assume that we're dealing with feet. We can divide both sides of this equation by 6 so that we have just a w on the left-hand side.
The perimeter of Tina's rectangular garden is 60 feet. So if this is w, then the length is going to be 2w.
If the length of the garden is twice the width, what are the dimensions of the garden?
Features: Calculator Examples (1): A parent died and left an estate to four children.
one inherited 4/9 of the estate, the second inherited 7/81 and the third inherited 10/27 how much did the fouth inherit?
— and, trust me, you don't want to do this to yourself! Certain words indicate certain mathematica operations. But the order in addition doesn't matter, so it's okay to add backwards, because the result will be the same either way.) Also note that order is important in the "quotient/ratio of" and "difference between/of" constructions.
If a problems says "the ratio of Some times, you'll be expected to bring your "real world" knowledge to an exercise.
Pick variables to stand for the unknows, clearly labelling these variables with what they stand for. You need to do this for two reasons: " stands for, so you have to do the whole problem over again.
I did this on a calculus test — thank heavens it was a short test! (Technically, the "greater than" construction, in "Addition", is also backwards in the math from the English.
