A rectanfular piece of property measures 50 feet by 150 feet. the owner decides to surround the property with a fence placed exactly two feet inside of the property lines. How much fencing will be needed ?
a.364ft
b.384 ft
c. 400 ft
d 404 ft

    Since the new fence is 2' inside the lines on both sides, we need to subtract 4 feet from each dimension.

    P = 2(L+W)
    2((50-4)+(150-4)) = 384

  • math -

    P = 2L + 2W

    P = (2 * 46) + (2 * 146)

    P = ?
