There are two borders...

You add 6 to each dimension in order to get the dimensions of the next border, as there

are 3 feet on each dide.

The first border has dimensions 8 by 18, which has a TOTAL area of 144.

But the status inside has area of 2x12 = 24, so the area of the first border is 144 - 24 = 120.

There are some other type of flower inside this border.

The daisy border is the next one, which has dimensions 14 by 24, which has a

TOTAL area of 336. However, inside this border is the first border and statue, which

has an area of 144. So 336 - 144 = 192.

192 = 8 * 24, so it has an area that is exactly 8 times the statue's base area.

I have uploaded the diagram in the RESOURCES section under TOOLKIT menu.
