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.
