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 onethird 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 
answer to the melt in your mouth chocolate factory opens its doors each day at 7:00am. sharp. sally arrived at the factory ten minutes before the doors opened. Lucke got there eighteen minutes after sally, but four minutes before Michelle.at what time did Michelle arrive at the factory?

the melt in your mouth chocolate factory is a rectangular building. the distance across the front of the store is 28 yards. the distance from the front to the back of the building is 12 yards. if the owners want to put up a fence around the outside of the factory. how many yards long will the fence need to be

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
