What is the least amount of wooden fencing needed for the perimeter of a rectangular garden with an area of 48 square yards?

  • 6th grade -

    Area could be 2 x 24, 3 x 16, 4 x 12, 6 x 8 (and vice versa). Perimeter equals 2L+2W. If the area was 2 x 24, the perimter would be 2(2)+2(24)=4+48=52. Do this with the 3 x 16, 4 x 12, and 6 x 8, and see which has the smallest perimeter.

    Some possible dimensions:

    6 by 8
    4 by 12
    3 by 16
    2 by 24

    Which of these would have the smallest perimeter?
