Question

Madhu is hanging a string of flowers on the perimeter of a rectangular pool deck. The deck is 30 feet long and 24 feet wide. How long does the string of flowers need to be?

1 Answer

  • Answer:

    108 feet long

    Step-by-step explanation:

    You know that to find the perimeter you have to add up all the sides. A rectangle has 4 sides, so 30+30 is 60 and 24+24 is 48. Add 60 and 48 up and you get 108 as the perimeter. Since Madhu is hanging a string of flowers on the PERIMETER, the flower string will need to be 108 feet long.

    Hope this Helped!
