 Question 160079: Mr. Calvillo wants to enclose a rectangular are for a garden space of a given square footage. The length of the plot will vary inversely as the width. If he decides on a width of 28 feet, the garden will be 30 feet long. How long will a 45 foor wide garden be?Answer by jojo14344(1512)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Similar to Boyle's LAw in Physics wher Pressure is inversely proportional to Volume, we can also conlude a formula accdg. to the square footage of a rectangle to the above problem: where, , , Substituting, ---> ANSWER. The length decreases as the Width becomes bigger --> inversely proportional. Thank you, Jojo
