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.

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
