My DD was trying to figure out this problem last night and we can't. I am so bad at Math, i hope someone can help. She has to turn this in today for school.
Here is the problem:
A piece of wire 63 inches long is cut into 2 parts. The 2 parts are bent to form 2 different size squares. The perimeter of the larger square is 5 inches greater than the perimeter of the smaller square. What is the perimeter of each square?
Using the information of the perimeter, what is the area of each square?? What is the sum of the area of BOTH squares??
Thank you to anyone who can help!!!!
