A Landscaper, who just completed a rectangular flower garden measuring 6 feet by 10 feet, orders 1 cubic yard of premixed cement, all of which is to be used to create a border of uniform width around the garden. if the border is to have a depth of 3 inches, how wide will the border be? ( 1 cubic yard=27 cubic feet)
