Answer: The width of the garden is 3.75 ft

Step-by-step explanation:

The perimeter of the garden is calculated as follows;

Perimeter = 2L + 2W

Where L is the length and W is the width

However we have been given that the length is 15 ft, and the width is x (unknown).

Substituting for the values of the length and the width

Perimeter = 2L + 2W

37.5 = 2(15) + 2(x)

37.5 = 30 + 2x

Subtract 30 from both sides of the equation

7.5 = 2x

Divide both sides of the equation by 2

3.75ft = x
