If the perimeter of the garden is 46 ft, find the dimensions of the garden.Answer by pwac(253)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let width = x so length=2x-1 Perimeter is x+x+2x-1+2x-1=46 Do sum on left: 6x-2=46 Add 2 to both sides 6x=48 Divide both sides by 6: x=8 So width=8ft. Length=2times8-1=15ft. Pete
