Can someone please help me with this word problem!?! I know the answer which is 784 feet. But I have no clue how to solve it. Can someone please show how to solve this problem? The word problem is: The melt in Your Mouth Chocolate Factory is a rectangular building. The distance across the front of the store is 98 yards. The distance from the front to the back is one-third of this distance. If the owners paint a sign all the way around the outside of the factory, how many feet will the sign be?

    1/3 * 98 = 32.667

    P = 2(98) + 2 (32.667

    P = 261.334 yards

    261.334 * 3 = 784 feet

    Cutting through the fog of this absurdly worded question ....
    Front of store : 98 yds = 294 feet
    Side of store : = (1/3)(294) feet = 98 feet

    perimeter = 2(294+98) feet or 784 feet

    294+294=588.
    98+98=196
    588+196=784
    Adding all sides together

    98*3=294
    294\3=98
    294+98=392
    392*2=784


    784 Feet
