    What are the dimensions and the cost of the least expensive pen Claire and chad could build, assuming the side lengths are whole numbers. Explain. I got 8 by 6 and it's right but I forgot how I got the answer for the cost help me

    Please answer anyone you guys there?

    Ahh -- I see now.

    P = 2L + 2W

    P = (2 * 8) + (2 * 6)

    P = 16 + 12

    P = 28 feet

    28 * 0.85 = $23.80

    the dimensions are 8x6. if you multiply the cost $.085 times 48 you get $40.80.
