David's father is in charge of decorating the 2-layer cake for Great Grampa's birthday. Great Grampa's birthday is on the Fourth of July, he used to be a pilot, and he loves fishing. David and his father have decided to decorate the sides of the bottom layer of the cake (measuring 9 in. * 15 in.) with fish and the sides of the top layer (6 in. * 9 in.) with airplanes. They are going to wrap a flag around each corner of both layers. Each decoration is 1 inch wide, and each flag is folded so that one-half inch of flag shows at each side of the corner.

Show one corner of one layer with the Polish flag in place, with 1/2 of the flag visible on each side.

"We need 2 inches between all decorations," says David's father. "Otherwise it will look too crowded."

How many decorations of each kind do David and his father need?
