  • math -

    For the square with area 25 yd^2,

    x^2 = 25; x = 5; where x is the length of a side of the square. The perimeter of this square is 5*4 = 20

    For the square with area 5 yd^2,

    y^2 = 5; y = 5^0.5; where y is the length of the side of this square. The perimeter of this square is 4*(5^0.5)

    The total yards of fencing needed to enclose both is the sum of the perimeters of both squares, or 20 + 4*(5^0.5)
