    Unhappy Someone PLEASE help me with this problem??

    The question is--

    A web developer is building a web page which has a length of 11 in and width of 7 in. The website has frames along its top and to its left showing the links of different websites and pictures. These frames take up to one third of the computer screen/the web page. X is the width of the the frame where the top and left frames intersect at the left corner of the page. What is the length of X?

    1. I assume that these frames have the same width. I call it x.

    2. Draw a sketch of the page.

    3. Then

    (7-x)(11-x)=\underbrace{\frac23 \cdot \overbrace{(7 \cdot 11)}^{\text{complete page}}}_{\text{outside the frames}}

    4. Solve for x. Be careful: There are some constraints to be observed.
