Cormac and Seán have a vegetable garden whose length is three times its width. The perimeter of the garden measures 80 metres. What is the area, in square metres, of the brothers' vegetable garden?

L = 3W

2L + 2W = 80

Now substitute

2(3W) + 2W = 80

6W + 2W = 80

8W = 80

W = 10

L = 3(10) = 30

Then, the area is

(10)(30) = 300 square meters
