The orangeflower garden belongs to Bridget.
Perimeter = 32 ft
Area = 48 ft^{2}
The redflower garden belongs to Travis.
Perimeter = 30 ft
Area = 32 ft^{2}
The yellowflower garden belongs to Jessica.
Perimeter = 28 ft
Area = 48 ft^{2}
The purpleflower garden belongs to Stacey.
Perimeter = 26 ft
Area = 40 ft^{2}
Step 1
Find the perimeter of the orangeflower garden.
P = 7 ft + 9 ft + 4 ft + 5 ft + 3 ft + 4 ft = 32 ft
The perimeter of the orangeflower garden is 32 ft.
Find the area of the orangeflower garden.
Separate the figure into a rectangle (4 ft x 9 ft) and a square (3 ft x 4 ft).
Use a formula to find the area of each polygon.
(A = l x w)
4 ft x 9 ft = 36 ft^{2} 3 ft x 4 ft = 12 ft^{2}
Add the areas to find the area of the whole figure.
36 ft^{2} + 12 ft^{2} = 48 ft^{2}
The area of the orangeflower garden is 48 ft^{2}.
Step 2
Find the perimeter of the redflower garden.
P = 5 + 2 + 2 + 4 + 2 + 2 + 5 + 8 = 30 ft
The perimeter of the redflower garden is 30 ft.
Find the area of the redflower garden.
Think of the garden as a smaller rectangle (2 ft x 4 ft) cut out of a larger rectangle (5 ft x 8 ft). Subtract the area of the smaller rectangle from the area of the larger rectangle.
5 ft 8 ft = 40 ft^{2} 
2 ft 4 ft = 8 ft^{2} 

32 ft^{2} 
The area of the redflower garden is 32 ft^{2}.
Step 3
Find the perimeter of the yellowflower garden.
P = 6 ft + 8 ft + 6 ft + 8 ft = 28 ft
Find the area of the yellowflower garden.
6 ft x 8 ft = 48 ft^{2}
The area of the yellowflower garden is 48 ft^{2}.
Step 4
Find the perimeter of the purpleflower garden.
P = 5 ft + 8 ft + 5 ft + 8 ft = 26 ft
Find the area of the purpleflower garden.
A = 8 ft x 5 ft = 40 ft^{2}
Step 5
Use the clues to find out which garden belongs to which person.
