Garden Bed Equation and Inequality

A friend has given you left-over landscaping bricks. You decide to make a garden bed and surround it with the bricks. There are 62 bricks, and each brick is 8 inches long. You would like the garden bed to be slightly more than twice as long as it is wide, as shown in the diagram below. You have also given yourself a budget of $125 for additional materials should you need them. Your local home improvement store sells the same bricks for $1.98 per brick. The displayed sides present the number of bricks on each side, where x is a number of bricks.
