The answer says 36.22 m. How did they get that?

I can tell that answer is wrong. The wood alone on the inside perimeter will be 10+7+8 =25 m. The outside will be larger than that, so it is over 50 m needed. If I have time later, I will guide you thru the solution. It begs for a sketch pad,because you have many similar triangles at the corners. I may give up on it here.

Ughhh

That's exactly what I thought, but my math teacher was being an ass and insisting it to the level of retardation.
