I want to fence a rectangular garden which measures 33 by 24 feet. If the fencing I want costs $4.50 per yard, how much will it cost me for the fencing if I want to leave a two foot opening for a gate? (I cannot buy fencing of less than one full yard.)

asked by Tony
  1. 33 by 24 feet = 11 by 8 yards
    2 feet = 0.67 yards

    P = 2L + 2W
    P = 22 + 16
    P = 38 yards

    38 - 0.67 = 37.33 yards

    38 * 4.50 = $________
