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!!!!!

Since you're estimating, what is 4 times 17?
Then multiply that by 4 
i put 68.00 dollars before ooh... i forgot to multiply again thanx!!!!!

so its 272 dollars?

We only need three sides of fencing.
So 3 * 17 = 51
Now multiply by $4.
51 * 4 = about $200. 
Oh ok thank ms sue r u a teacher?

Ms sue.?

~200 dollars (~about)
