Question Description

Several years ago, Matt built a rectangular flower bed at his house. The width of the flower bed was 13 inches less than the length of the flower bed. This spring, Matt decides to build a new rectangular flower bed at his house that covers the same area as the old flower bed. After some planning, he decides that the length of the new flower bed should be 10 inches less than the width of the old flower bed, and that the width of the new flower bed should 10 inches greater than two times the length of the old flower bed.

What is the approximate length of the old flower bed?
