Find the length of the sides of the object. Good for finding how much fencing you would need to enclose an area.

Perimeter is used when you want to find the length of the sides of an object. A practicle use for perimeter would be knowing how much fencing you need to enclose a certain amount of space, but the length of the fencing would be the perimeter.

That would probably be a 25x25 square with an area of 625 square feet.

P = 2L + 2W

The length of the field is 250 meters. As we know the field is a rectangle, you can divide the amount of fencing in 2, which would be 400 meters. This will provide you with enough fencing for one end and one side. To determine the actual length of the side you would take your 400 meters and subtract the end length which is 150 meters, leaving you with a side length of 250 meters.

The maximum area that you can enclose with 3000 feet of fencing would be a circle of radius 477.46 feet. This circle would have an area of 716197.2 square feet which is 16.442 acres. The minimum area that you can enclose is infinitesimally small - go for a very, very long and very, very narrow area.
