A 5-inch by 7-inch picture is placed on a rectangular piece of red paper such that a 0.5-inch wide red border is seen along each side of the picture. What is the area of the visible red border, in square inches? I
drew it out and added .5 to each side or 6x8 and im rly confused
Subtract the area of the picture from the area of the red paper.
(6*8) - (5*7) = 48 - 35 = 13 inches squared.
