All in Good Measure




            Carey owns Carey Me Away Flowers.  She has had a huge increase in the demand for Double Fantasy freesias. So she has decided to add an 18Õ by 25Õ bed to grow additional freesias.  Carey drove her pickup truck to a remote section of her nursery and got out to survey the area.  In her haste Carey forgot her morning coffee and was not thinking thoroughly when she left the shop.  When she arrived she found that she did not bring her tape measure!  Looking around her truck she found a length of rope.  She then remembered that the wooden toolbox on the bed of her truck measures 3Õ by 5Õ.


How can Carey measure out her new 18Õ by 25Õ plot using the rope?




Good Luck!!!!!
