area of frame = (14*10)-(10*6)

square = 10*6

frame/square = 4/3

How do you interpret the area of a frame? I thought it was the area surrounding the picture. Hence, area of the frame = total area - area of picture = (10 + 2) * (6 + 2) - (10 * 6)

area of picture = 60

ratio = (96 - 60) / 60???

The area of the frame should be 140-60=80. L(14)xW(10).

You are missing that the frame is 2cm thick, not just 1, therefore the sizes of the frame are 10, 14

10*6=60 Area of pic

(10+4)(10) = 140 Area of total. (frame and pic)

140-60= 80

80/60 --> 4/3
