Assuming that you have a rectangle shaped area, 20 yards long by 15 yards wide, and you want to completely enclose the area with the fencing, then you have a problem where you need to find the perimeter of a rectangle. Perimeter = 2 * Length + 2 * Width Perimeter = 2 * (20 yd) + 2 * (15 yd) = 40 yd + 30 yd = 70 yards

There's not enough information here to figure that out. If it was a square, we'd know it was 15 x 15 and the perimeter would be 60. But there are four possible whole number rectangles with differing perimeters. 250 x 1, perimeter 502 75 x 3, perimeter 156 45 x 5, perimeter 100 25 x 9, perimeter 68

if the rectangle is a square 18yd x 18yd, the area = 324 sq yd. that us the largest area. As one side gets smaller, the other side get larger.If the smallest length you can measure is 1 yd., the rectangle would be 1 yd. x yd 35 yd.= 35 sq. yd. IF you can draw a line .01 yd.long, the other side of the rectangle is 36.99 yd. long. .01 yd x 36.99 yd = .3599 sq yd. There is no smallest area, only a largest area.

A "yard" is a unit of length or distance. It's not a unit of area. So "15 yd" could represent a perimeter,but it could not represent an area.I should be perimeter. Because if it was area i think it would be square yards

Perimeter is the length round the outside. A basketball court is a rectangle, so: perimeter = 2 x (length + width) = 2 x (30 yd + 40 yd) = 2 x 70 yd = 140 yd

A square's area is side^2. The perimeter is side*4. I'll assume you meant 25 square yards. A=25 yd=s^2 s=5 yd P=5*4 yd=20 yd

Well, L=6 and W=18If you do the math you get (6*2)+(18*2)=12+36=48Your final answer 48 yd. The perimeter is 48 yd.

Perimeter = 8+8+10+10 = 36 yards

The perimeter of a rectangle cannot be calculated by just knowing the area unless the rectangle is a square. In which case the perimeter will be 4 x square root of the area.
