From what i understand, there are 2 yards to enclose with fencing, both of which are rectangular in shape. 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

the price of steel fencing depends on how many yards of steel you are going to need, how high you want your fence, and the shape of your yard. it also depends on how many posts you will need. steel fence posts average about $4 a piece.

If you are calculating a rectangular yard with two sides each of 20 yards and two shorter sides each of 15 yards the total length of fence required would be 20 yards + 20 yards + 15 yards + 15 yards which = 70 yards of fence.

Because yards are units of length, the question contains its own answer: 85 yards.

389 feet of fencing is equal to 129 2/3 yards. 129 2/3 times 15 = $1945

Impossible; grams are measures of weight and yards are measures of length.

Oliver needs 40 yards, because 24 + 24 +36 + 36 = 120 feet (perimeter of garden). Since there are 3 feet in a yard you would then divide 120 by 3 to get 40 yards! :)

Yards and milliliters are two different units of measurement. Yards measures distance while milliliters measures volume.

There are cubic yards and there are square yards There are no cubic square yards. You can't convert square yards into cubic yards; one measures area, the other measures volume.

40 yards

None. Feet are linear measures while cubic yards are measures of volume.

Assuming all four sides are being fenced, 420 feet of fencing is required, which converts to 140 yards.

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.

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)
