Mr lopez is putting up fence around his garden that is the shape of a rectangle,if the longer sides is 14 feet and the shorter sides is 9 1/2 feet long ,how much fencing should he buy.

Math 
Dr. Jane,
Perimeter = 2L + 2W
2(14) + 2(.5) 
Math 
Tim,
My answer is 14 +14+9 1/2+9 1/2 and when I add them together I get 47 feet fencing mr Lopez needs to buy

Math 
Writeacher,
Right
2(14) + 2(9.5) = 47 
Math
