    If the square perimeter is 8y, then the square side would be:
    square perimeter= 4*side
    8y= 4*side
    side=2y

    The square garden side is 3m shorter than the length of the rectangle garden. The rectangle garden length will be:
    rectangle length= square sides +3
    rectangle length= 2y+3

    rectangle perimeter= 2(rectangle length + rectangle side)
    rectangle perimeter= 2(2y+3 + 2y+1)
    rectangle perimeter= 2(4y+4)
    rectangle perimeter= 8y + 8
