Just to clarify, you are calculating the dimensions for something like a rectange that is divided in the middle? like 2 boxes that share the middle line?

Sorry for the first answer, i was attempting to solve using calculus, heres an another method:
3x = 1200 - 3x
6x = 1200
x = 200
1200 - 3(200) = 2L
600 = 2L
L = 300
300 ft x 200 ft

Imagine you are looking at a DNA fingerprint that shows an STR pattern of a mothers DNA and her childs DNA. Will all of the bands on the Southern Blot showing the childs DNA match those of the mother? Explain. (To help you answer this question, visit the Biology Animation Library at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and play the tutorial about the Southern Blot technique.) .)
