I am planting a rectangular garden
that is 8 feet long and 6 feet wide. There is a family of bunnies
that live in my backyard, so I decided that I need to put a fence
around my garden to keep the bunnies from eating my plants. How
much fencing do I need to buy?
Hint: Draw a picture.
For 4th and 5th grades: At the hardware store, fencing comes in a
5 yard spool for $8.99. What will it cost me to fence my garden?
