The length in your question is smaller than the width. Please make sure the question is correct.

Yes Im sorry 13 m is the length

I think I have answered this question before. Please see the answer below.

Assuming the width and length are increased by x,

Then (9+x)(13+x)=192

9*13+22x+x^2=192

x^2+22x-75=0

(x+25)(x-3)=0

So x=3

Therefore the width of the new garden is 3+9=12 m, and the length of the new garden is 3+13=16m.
