A community garden is sectioned off into 12 congruent individual plots with rope as shown in the diagram. Find the total length of rope used. Then find the total length of rope needed if the garden is sectioned off into six congruent rectangles.

Math 
Mimi,
12 congruent individual plots
8ydx7=56yd 18ydx3=54yd
56yd+54yd=110yd
Total length: 110yd

6 congruent congruent rectangles
4ydx2=8yd 3ydx2=6yd
8ydx4=32yd 6ydx3=18yd
18ydx3=54yd
32yd+54yd=86yd
Total length: 86yd
