Farmer McDonald is building a fence. He will place posts six feet apart and stretch the wire fencing between the posts. If his pasture is thirtysix feet long and twelve feet across, how many posts will he need? Please help immediately1

Imagine each dot is a post 6 feet apart.
You may want to sketch this problem on graph paper.
Count the dots.

He needs 21 posts. Right or wrong?

Wrong.
Draw a diagram, noting that you put only one fence post at each corner.
