The length and width of a rectangular

garden are 15 meters and 10 meters, respectively.

A walkway of width x surrounds the garden.

(a) Draw a diagram that gives a visual representation

of the problem.

(b) Write the equation for the perimeter y of the

walkway in terms of x.

(c) Use a graphing utility to graph the equation for the

perimeter.

(d) Determine the slope of the graph in partÂ (c). For

each additional one-meter increase in the width

of the walkway, determine the increase in its

perimeter.
