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.)

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 = \$________
