Is the answer 44 feet wide? What I did was draw a rectangle an label both widths as 6, that equals 12. Then I subtracted 12 from 96 and got 84 and in order to only get one side length I divided it by 2 and got 42. Next I added 2 to that because the width of one side took up one foot and so did the other side so yeah. I'm just guessing.
