Part B

Can Wendell make a triangular garden using pieces D, E, and F? Why or why not?

Part C

Can Wendell make a rectangular garden with the pieces of wood he has? If yes, which pieces can he use?

[MA]:He needs 4 pieces for the first rectangle which leaves only 2 pieces for the second triangle. Rectangles must have 4 sides. He can create 2 triangular gardens. Triangles only require 3 sides which means he can make 2 triangular gardens.Writer’s note: Have a great day!{xArtsy}
