Howard has 102 feet of fencing. What is the area of the largest square dog pen he can build with the fencing?

• math -

Since it is a square dog pen, it has 4 equal sides. So I would do 102/4
That would equal 25.5
Then, I would do 25.5 times 25.5
I think that that would give you the answer.

Sorry if this information is incorrect!

The information is correct.
