    You've already given the dimensions: 80 ft long and 50 ft wide.

    Do you need to find the area?

    I think. I am honestly not sure what to do.

  • Math - ,

    To find the area, multiply the length times the width.

    A = LW
    A = 80 * 50
    A = 4,000 square feet

    If you need to find the perimeter (the distance around), then you need to add all four sides.

    P = 2L + 2W
    P = (2 * 80) + (2 * 50)
    P = 160 + 100
    P = 260 feet
