    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
