A picture that is 11 inches by 14 inches is to be framed using wood that is 1 inch wide. Find the perimeter of the picture then explain why the length of the perimeter would not be enough to frame the picture.

Answer:

p = (2 * 11) + (2 * 14) = 50 …

because the width of the frame is 1 inch, the outer perimeter of the frame is 4 inches more than the inner (picture) perimeter
