Two of the local ranchers are bragging about their ability to use fencing sparingly. Bob says that he was once able to fence in a rectangular pasture of 14,200 square feet with only 480 feet of fencing. Susan says that she was once able to fence in a rectangular pasture of 9,700 square feet with only 400 feet of fencing. Which one is lying?

*PLEASE SHOW STEPS!

    √14,200 = 119

    √9,700 = 98.4

    Multiply the square roots by 4 to find the fencing needed.

    I think they are both telling the truth.
