The area of the Frame is 108 $in^{2}$.
To find the area of the Frame we need to find the area of the frame and picture and subtract it from the area of the picture. (1) Area of Picture = L $\times$ W = 7 $\times$ 5 = 35 $in^{2}$. (2) Area of Picture + Frame = L $\times$ W (i) The Length of the Picture + Frame equals the length of the picture plus 6 inches because the frame is 3 inches wide from both sides, so therefore L = 7 +2(3) = 13 in (ii) The width of the Picture + Frame equals the width of the picture plus 6 inches because the frame is 3 inches wide from both sides, so therefore W = 5 +2(3) = 11 in Area of Picture + Frame = 13 $\times$ 11 = 143 $in^{2}$. (3) Area of Frame = 143 - 35 = 108 $in^{2}$.
