square and cost £2.80 each. He finds that, using whole slabs, he is only able to buy

enough to lay an area which is twice as long as it is wide but will not cover the whole patio.

He decides to leave the remainder as a rectangular flower bed down one side.

If his patio garden is 5 m wide, how wide is the flower bed?

A 1.4 m

B 1.5 m

C 2.0 m

D 3.5 m

E 7.0 m

I am struggling with the question above - can anyone please advise me on how to tackle it? The correct answer is B.

Thanks
