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

= 2(125) + 2(185) {substituted width and length into perimeter formula}

= 250 + 370 {multiplied}

= 620 {added}

The length of the fence is 620 feet.

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.
