Talk:2008 AMC 12B Problems/Problem 16

The problem, as I found it, was stated incorrectly. The border around the inner rectangle should have width 1 foot, not 2 feet, and as the border lies on both sides of the rectangle then the width of the inner rectangle is 2 feet less than the width of the outer rectangle, as the work in the solution indicates.

The problem was reproduced correctly here [1]
