Robbie needs to buy fencing for his square vegetable garden that measures 16 3/4 feet on a side. One side borders the back of the garage. The fencing costs $4 per feet. Estimate how much the fencing will cost. I NEED HELP!!!!!

Ms. Sue,
Since you're estimating, what is 4 times 17?
Then multiply that by 4

gaby,

gaby,
so its 272 dollars?

Oops! I made a mistake! 
Ms. Sue,
We only need three sides of fencing.
So 3 * 17 = 51
Now multiply by $4.
51 * 4 = about $200.
