Am i correct?The rule for calculating the perimeter (that is what they are asking you to calculate) for a rectangle islength + length + width + widthThen, the amount of fencing required to fence the front yard will be65 + 65 + 45 + 45 = 220 feetFor the back yard, the amount of fencing that is required will be35 + 35 + 45 + 45 = 160 feet

How many yards of fencing will you need to fence 25 acre field exactly .25 miles apart?

The question suffers from a few problems:Problem #1:The closer we read the question, the less sense it makes. What is 0.25 miles apart ?The pieces of the field ? The fence-posts ? Nothing we can think of seems like a reasonableassumption. So you know what ? We're just going to ignore that part of the question,and talk about the length of fencing you'll need.Problem #2:The area doesn't tell you the perimeter. Your 25 acres could have an infinitenumber of different shapes and sizes, and every one of them would take adifferent amount of fencing to enclose it.If you want to use the absolute minimum amount of fence, then you want the25 acres in the shape of a circular field, 392.5 yards in diameter. Then thecircumference of the circle is 3,700 ft. = 1,233.1yards. (rounded)If you definitely want straight sides around the plot, then you want it in theshape of a square with sides of 347.9 yards. The perimeter of the square is4174.2 ft = 1,391.4 yards. (rounded)That's the minimum. If it's a rectangle and not square, then the longer andskinnier it is, the more fence it needs ... while keeping the same constant areaof 25 acres. For example:-- If it's 242 yds by 500 yds, it's 25 acres, and you need 1,484 yards of fence to enclose it.-- If it's 121 by 1,000 yds, it's still 25 acres, but you need 2,242 yards of fence to enclose it.-- If it's 44 by 2,750 yds, it's still 25 acres, but you need 5,588 yards to enclose it.

How much area does 100 yards of fence enclose?

It can enclose any area between zero and 795 square yards.If the field is 49.9999 yards long and 0.0001 yard wide, then the perimeter is 100 yardsand the area is 0.0049999 square yard.The greatest possible enclosed area with a given amount of fence and straight sides is a square. With 100 yardsof fence, the square that's 25 yards on a side encloses 625 square yards of land.The greatest possible enclosed area with a given amount of fence and any shape is a circle. With 100 yards of fence,the circle with a circumference of 100 yards has a diameter of 31.83 yards, and encloses an area of 795.77 square yards. (the number is rounded)
