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.

Perimeter = 2L + 2W
2(14) + 2(.5) 
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

Right
2(14) + 2(9.5) = 47 
Thank you

sorry about my typo... 9.5..
