    Answer:

    A. 9 feet

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The garden would be in form of a rectangle and as such will have 2 equal lengths and 2 equal width.

    The equation to be used to find the length l and width w of the garden is same as the perimeter of a rectangle given as

    = 2(l + b).

    If the garden is 15 feet long, the perimeter is equal to the total length of wood Manny has which is 48 feet. Hence

    48 = 2(15 + w)

    24 = 15 +w

    w = 24 – 15

    w = 9.

    The garden is 9 feet wide.
