Math help please?

Eric, Jose, Shannon, and Jackie wanted to plant a garden. Jose’s dad said they could use a

rectangular space in the backyard that was 8 m by 4 m.

The friends decided they would first like to make a colorful border for the garden using

small flowering plants called marigolds.

If they planted the marigold plants 10 cm apart, how many would they need to complete

the border?

I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO DO THIS PROBLEM. PLease tell me what to do to more or less solve this, because this is very confusing.
