## 'Framed' printed from http://nrich.maths.org/

Seven small pictures, all square or rectangular, with sides
measuring a whole number of inches and each with a different area,
have frames exactly one inch wide. In each case the area of the
frame is either the same as the area of the picture or a multiple
of it. The frames are removed and the pictures are fitted together
like a jigsaw to make a rectangle of length 12 inches. Find the
dimensions of the pictures, show how they fit together to make a
rectangle and find the width of the rectangle.
