A rectangular lot that measures 125 feet by 185 feet is completely fenced in. What is the length, in
feet, of the fence? A.) 310 B.) 435 C.) 620 D.) 740 E.) 1,240
The lot is rectangular. Adding up the sides will give the perimeter of the lot, or length of the fence
used. width = 125 length = 185 Perimeter of a rectangle = 2(width) + 2(length) = 2(125) + 2(185) {substituted width and length into perimeter formula} = 250 + 370 {multiplied} = 620 {added} The length of the fence is 620 feet. C.) 620 Ask Algebra House Comments are closed.
