**Ms. Sue**, Wednesday, March 27, 2013 at 11:48amIf you don't know what your School Subject is, who does? I suspect it's math.

P = 2L + 2W

32 = L + 2(0.5L)

32 = 2L

16 = L

**Lee**, Wednesday, March 27, 2013 at 12:00pmAnd Ms.sue. Your wrong. Cause if the length is 16 then the width is 8 and that will equal 24. Nice try

**Ms. Sue**, Wednesday, March 27, 2013 at 12:21pmI'm so sorry, Lee, that you don't realize that college is a school. At least most colleges are schools for educating students. What is the name of your college?

A fence needs to go around the entire garden. It has two lengths and two widths, right? One length lies along the wall. That means that two widths and one length are enclosed by the fence.

16 + 8 + 8 = 32
