Flor is putting a fence around a field. The field is rectangular and measures 9.38 yards (yd) long and 14.74 yd wide. How much fence must Flor purchase?
A rectangular field has 4 sides. Two of the sides are each 9.38 yards long. The other two sides are 14.74 yards long.
The two short sides need 18.76 yards of fencing. How many yards do the two short sides need?
How much fencing do you think Flor needs all together?
