# Two patches

Peter taped the wound with two rectangular patches (one over the other to form the letter X).
The area sealed with both patches at the same time had a content of 40cm2 and a circumference of 30cm. One of the patches was 8cm wide.
What was the width of the second patch?

Correct result:

v2 =  4 cm
